The Dragon Boat Festival is every June in Vancouver since 1986.
We celebrated Vancouver’s 100th anniversary in 1986, Expo 86, a world exposition. The Dragon Boat Festival has been held every year since then. The Dragon Boat races are held at False Creek and has grown in popularity. Thousands of spectators converge at False Creek to watch the teams compete. There is entertainment, food trucks and and special vendors selling their wares. A must see event. The Blue Horizon is only steps away from False Creek. Get a room and get to the action.
