All 2023 Dragon Boat Festival Information can be found here:

The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival will be held August 25-26th at Barker's Island Resort and Marina in Superior, Wisconsin. 

Putting on this event is a major undertaking, and this year, Duluth Skyline Rotary will be assisting the Superior Rotary with this weekend event full of fun free family entertainment for the entire community.

About the Festival and Rotary:

The Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival (LSDBF) is organized, operated and staffed by Rotary Club of Superior for the good of our community. These members who are local residents of the Twin Ports area have created this family fun event to better the community and experiences of the people within it. Since 2002, LSDBF has raised over $1.3 million to support charitable organizations in the Twin Ports.

LSDBF supports the mission of Rotary International: to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. Rotary International consists of 1.2 million members and 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries worldwide.

Event Information:

Located at the head of Lake Superior, this 400-meter race is a straight course that takes place in the Superior Bay off of Barkers Island. The water between the island and the mainland provides an ideal venue for the race, and historic Barker’s Island is a terrific staging area for not only the race but is also a recreational park for local residents.

There is ample space for spectators and all the activities associated with the festival. Many teams erect tents for the weekend, socialize, nap and celebrate on the island. Race heats take place completely in view across the island and happen in quick succession. The event is family friendly, has no admission fee for spectators, and is tons of fun!

Spectators are welcome to partake in the festival at no charge!
