Dragon Boat Festival

Saturday September 8th

The Hong Kong Information Center in Atlanta conducted the Fifteenth Annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in Atlanta in September of 2010. The Festival last year took place at Lake Lanier on the same venue that hosted the 1996 Summer Olympic Games Rowing and Paddling events. Activities commenced with races beginning at 9am and the colorful Opening Ceremonies at noon. The race has grown from a handful of teams and a few spectators to an event which is one of the hallmark diversity events in the metro Atlanta area. The event now boasts a field of more than 50 teams with over 5,000 spectators and a wide variety of Chinese artisans either performing or displaying their wares.  For more information please visit
