On September 12, 2015, the town of Carleton Place will once again find Riverside Park teaming with excitement. Preparing for another successful year, we plan on another full festival with 46+ teams – over 1100 paddlers and drummers coursing across the finish line with a large number of spectators cheering them on. Visitors from all over Eastern Ontario are drawn to this event. The Race Format has changed for 2015. A few highlights:
Two 400m races and one 200m race
Two final races (“A” Final and “B” Final)
Refer to the Race Schedule Format section in the posted rules for details. We believe this exciting new format will be welcomed by all!
Come, be a part of the The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival – Carleton Place’s newest tradition and one of the world’s oldest.
The mission of the Festival Committee is to host the best (fun & well-run) small, one-day dragon-boat event in Eastern Ontario. We are a non-profit organization that returns 100% of the proceeds back to the community.
Date: September 12th 2015
