Current Boat Count


We are currently at 40 teams registered for this year's Festival.


30 teams that paddled last year have yet to register.


We have verbal commitments from 5 teams, and the presumed participation from another 4 or 5 teams.


That brings our current team count to about 50!!!

What we're all about.

The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival is celebrating 16 years of hard work, paddling, camaraderie and dedication to raising funds for area charitable and worthy organizations.

The date is set, the festival schedule is confirmed, and fundraising has begun—get ready. ... set ... and mark your calendars for the multi-cultural, fundraising event of the summer!


Why we paddle:

  1. To raise money for Twin Ports Rotary Clubs and their charitable giving.
  2. To raise funds for the festival’s charitable partner, the Essentia Health Foundation.
  3. To provide a free, fun, family event.
