The Dragons return to the Nottingham Riverside Festival for more fierce racing and fundraising for Rainbows Hospice for Children & Young People!

Dragon Boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today - as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each 30' boat with a drummer at the front beating time and our helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience required, just plenty of team spirit!

Gable Events is proud to be partnering Rainbows Hospice to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Nottingham Riverside Festival Dragon Boat Challenge. The Challenge is open to everyone and up to 50 crews are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators. The Riverside Festival is one of Nottingham's largest family events and includes a bustling fair and vibrant mix of music, dance, crafts and food from around the world.
