GWN Dragon Boat is proud to present the 21st Annual Great White North Dragon Boat Challenge Presented by CIBC. On September 12th & 13th, over 100 dragon boat crews from across North America will arrive at Toronto’s Marilyn Bell Park to race head-to-head, unofficially marking the culmination of Canada’s dragon boat racing season.
This event proudly supports The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Canada’s leading community-driven breast cancer charity dedicated to funding relevant and innovative research while supporting and advocating for the breast cancer community.
Festival grounds will offer a variety of activities for all participants and spectators. Families can bring their children to enjoy performances and games in the interactive Kids Zone, while the main event stage will feature DJ sets and live bands. Grab a bite from one of our food vendors while wandering through the Health and Wellness Zone, featuring exciting local products and services to assist in leading a healthy lifestyle. Last but definitely not least, the Steam Whistle Brewing beer garden will keep the party going right by the finish line and main entertainment stage!
