Welcome to the Canadian Cancer Society Canada Day Dragon Boat Festival in Portage la Prairie!

This event is a fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. What better way to celebrate Canada Day than by having fun with family and friends, celebrating national pride and raising funds to combat the leading cause of death in Manitoba.

This one-day festival takes place July 1, 2017 at Stride Place (formerly the PCU Centre), 245 Royal Road South, Portage la Prairie (MAP)

With practices starting in the morning and races later in the afternoon. The 500 metre race has something for everyone from first-time paddlers to the most experienced and with just 10 paddlers and a drummer needed, getting a team together has never been easier.

With instruction and race supervision by the Manitoba Paddling Association, safety is a top priority. Paddles and personal floatation devices will be provided, just gather your pledges and meet us at the dock!

The Top Fundraising Teams will be recognized in a special feature race.

Registrations are underway  NOW for the 2017 festival...Don't miss the boat! Click here for registration info!
