This festival takes place on Friday, June 1st (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) and Saturday, June 2nd (9:00 AM - 6:00 PM) at "Lake Shirley" (Manitoba Water Ski & Wake Board Park). It is our classic "Big Boat" festival that has something for everyone from first time paddlers to the most experienced! Each team is made up of 20 - 22 paddlers, a drummer and a steersperson.
The event is a fundraiser to fuel the fight against all forms of cancer in Manitoba and is open to all. We welcome teams of individuals, families, friends and co-workers (dragon boating is a super fun and excellent team builder).
The single most effective way that each of us can fight back against cancer is to raise money for research, prevention initiatives, and support for cancer patients and their families. What better way to do that than by getting together with to paddle with family, friends and/or co-workers to fight cancer - the leading cause of death in Manitoba.
The 2017 festival drew more than 1200 participants from 50 teams and raised vital funds to support the fight against ALL cancers through research and programs that support Manitobans on a cancer journey.
Registrations are underway NOW for the 2018 festival...Don't miss the boat!
