In the majestic setting of Western Australia's iconic Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, the inaugural Fremantle Dragon Boat Festival will be a spectacular celebration of world class dragon boat athletes led by Dragon Boating WA.

The exciting racing will be presented in an atmosphere of pageantry and colour, music and Chinese culture.

Amazing displays of colour and vibrant entertainment featuring Western Australia’s very own Chung Wah Association!

The festival will be abuzz with excitement and unforgettable performances by highly skilled and acrobatic Dragon and Lion Dancers, who will mesmerize and dazzle with their artistry!

Visitors can enjoy the races from the award winning Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour's many fine restaurants that overlook the water and Mews Park.

Spectacle Dragon boat festivals are loud, colourful, and rich in tradition. The awakening of the dragon ceremony is over 2000 years old and gives the festival participant a snapshot of another culture. The beating of the boat drums, the clash of gongs, and the cheers of the spectators will provide a high octane energy throughout the festival venue!

The dragon boat has been a significant part of Chinese culture and today there are more than 50 million paddlers in China, and has become an international sporting attraction.

Taoist monks will perform the blessing of the waters and a unique eye dotting ceremony – dabbing red paint onto the eyes of each boat’s figurehead, which is said to awaken the dragons.

The festival offers a unique opportunity to gather family members, friends and community together to enjoy a fun filled, exciting event!

Come and revel in the festivities which will commence at 10am with a dragon boat regatta, onto sprint racing and the crowning of the winning team!

Cultural performances, with meet and greet opportunities by dragon boat racing personalities and clubs will ensure an unforgettable experience!

The festival is a free entry, family friendly event.
