We are sponsoring the festival as main sponsors this 2018.
Why? it’s spreading out and doing something for the community. It’s about engaging with the generation of tomorrow with positive role models.
There will be 126 teams of up to 20 racing along the river in team boats over the course of three days.
Loads of land side entertainment, everyone involved and all for charity.
The date for this year’s Bradford Dragon Boat Festival has been set for Friday 22nd June, Saturday 23rd June and Sunday 24th June 2018.
Friday will be a dedicated day for schools whilst the Saturday will be the Lord Mayor’s Appeal Championship and Sunday, the Multi Charity Championship. The weekend will see teams from across the region converge once again on Roberts Park to “Race the Dragon” on the River Aire raising money for charity and helping to make a difference to so many lives.
The Bradford Dragonboat Festival is proud to support the Bradford Lord Mayor’s Appeal as the main event and teams racing on Saturday must raise money for this charity. In the spirit of Bradford’s generous and loving nature, the Bradford Dragonboat Festival is also opening up its doors on the Sunday to supporting other charities through its multi charity event. The only requirement is that any chosen charity, (other than the Lord Mayor’s Appeal), nominated by a business/organisation as the beneficiary of their team’s sponsorship in the Sunday event must be registered with the Charities Commission.
The whole event promises to be a fun filled three-day family festival with dragon boat racing on the river and landside attractions for all to enjoy including children’s entertainment, charity stalls, catering stands, landside games, bar, live acts and much, much more.
So get together with your colleagues, friends and family for a fantastic day out and let’s Race the Dragon!
