Milwaukee Dragon Boat Festival


Milwaukee Dragon Boat Festival

Saturday, August 13th, 2022



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.
