Welcome to the Canadian Cancer Society River City Dragon Boat Festival!

This festival takes place Friday, June 2nd (6:00PM - 9:00 PM) and Saturday, June 3rd (9:00AM - 6:00 PM) at the Manitoba Canoe & Kayak Club at 80 Churchill Drive in Winnipeg. Please note that this is a venue change due to technical problems. We were previuosly schduled to be at "Lake Shirley" (Manitoba Water Ski & WakeBoard Park). It is our classic “Big Boat” festival!

The event is a fundraiser to fuel the fight against all forms of cancer in Manitoba and is open to all. We welcome teams from businesses, organizations, individuals, families, friends and co-workers.

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 to paddle with family and friends to fight cancer - the leading cause of death in Manitoba

The 2016 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 2017 festival...Don't miss the boat! Click here for registration info!
