Newark Dragon Boat Festival

September 15

Newark Dragon Boat Festival is back.

Beaumond House Hospice and The Children’s Bereavement Centre are delighted to announce that for the fifth year running, The Newark Dragon Boat Festival will be taking place on Sunday 15th September at Newark Riverside Park.

Based on a Chinese tradition dating back over 2,000 years, dragon boat racing has today become one of the fastest-growing and most popular water-based activities with 10 people paddling the 30 foot boat with a drummer at the front.

As well as the main action taking place on the river there will be a variety of local food and drink suppliers, a bar and a range of activities available throughout the day for the whole family, including live entertainment.
The event is raising funds for Beaumond House Hospice Care and The Children’s Bereavement Centre.

Everyone welcome. A fun day is promised for all of the family whilst raising vital funds for two local charities. Entry is free – children’s activities will be charged for.

To find out more about the event, register a race team, become a corporate sponsor, or sign up to become a volunteer, please visit: Newark Dragon Boat Festival
