Charity Event: Montgomery Dragon Boat Race & Festival


The Montgomery Dragon Boat Race and Festival is a 501(c)(3) that works to benefit two local and worthy nonprofit organizations, Bridge Builders Alabama and Rebuilding Together Central Alabama (RTCA) . Proceeds from events go directly to building and maintaining the programs and services these organizations provide to the community.

 PADDLES UP is the war cry that Dragon Boat race participants have come to embrace. Race day is a community fun-filled event on the Alabama River providing entertainment for the entire family.

Dragon Boat racing incorporates high energy, fitness, team building and recreational exercise in a fun and  competitive atmosphere!  The Festival has grown into more than just on the water racing for the thousands of spectators that come down to see the races.  Up to 80 teams will converge downtown at the beautiful Riverfront Park to paddle and party on Race Day in the pursuit of the Grand Championship Trophy while supporting the missions of our two local beneficiaries. The Riverfront Park will be alive with music, entertainment, Children's Village and over 30 local vendors, artists, and exhibitors while teams compete on the water in view of over 8,000 spectators!

Special Thanks to our Key Sponsors

& of course Fireball Whisky!
