Community, culture, and competition. All in one boat.

Dragon Boat BC supports accessible community programming that allows everyone, regardless of ability or resources the chance to be active through our races and year round activity at the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival (North America's flagship dragon boat festival) and Dragon Zone Paddling Club (Canada's largest paddling club).

Come visit us in Olympic Village at our state-of-the-art paddling facility to enjoy year round workshops, classes, private paddling sessions, and lessons. We're located 5 minutes away from Main Street Skytrain Station, right on the seawall at Creekside Community Centre. Email us at for any information inquiries.
