The safety of the community is always first. We have canceled the 2020 races. Please keep safe and see you in 2021. We will update you with a 2021 festival date as soon as we can. 2020 race registration fees will be returned.
The Milwaukee Chinese Community is proud to present the Milwaukee Dragon Boat Festival and continue the tradition of ethnic and cultural festivals in Milwaukee. The highlight of the festival will be the Dragon Boat Races.
Our mission is to showcase a variety of Chinese culture and traditions. Throughout the festival, there will be performances in traditional dance, Chinese folk music, and Martial Arts. There will be hands-on opportunities for the young and young-at-heart to make opera masks and lanterns, play traditional games, participate in a dragon parade, and even learning to speak and write Chinese.
Thank you to our valued sponsor the Milwaukee Chinese Community Center:
