The Festival

On Saturday, July 20, 2019, over 1,500 people are expected to return to the beautiful beach at Portage Lakes State Park to attend the 7th Annual Dragons on the Lake Dragon Boat Festival. Many will be teams of 20 paddlers returning to defend their championship titles; others will be first time paddling enthusiasts wanting to discover the thrill of one of the fastest growing team water sports in the world. They will all be coming together to enjoy a day of community, camaraderie and competition to support the Dragon Dream Team, Ohio’s first all breast cancer survivor dragon boat team.

Dragons on the Lake is a day of community, camaraderie and competition. Dragon boating is one of the fastest growing team water sports in the world. Enthusiasm for this sport is rapidly growing. Hundreds of dragon boat festivals were held last year throughout the United States involving thousands of paddlers and raising millions of dollars for communities and worthy charities.

We are inviting you to “get on board” and be a part of the 2019 Dragons on the Lake Dragon Boat Festival. Your sponsorship is an opportunity to show support for breast cancer awareness, the Dragon Dream Team and your community.
