Carleton Place Dragon Ball Festival


Not to be missed! On September 10, 2016, the town of Carleton Place will once again find Riverside Park teaming with excitement.

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.

This festival provides a close-up view of the dragon boats. The entire race is in full view from the banks of the Mississippi. All proceeds from this fun, well-run dragon-boat event are returned to the community. 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.

Since it began in 2002, more than $40,500 has been donated to local organizations! In addition to the exciting races you’ll also find entertainment in Riverside Park, activities for kids, food and merchandise. Check for information about races, rules and fees.

For 2015, The Fall 400 donated $15,000 to the Arena Building Fund of the Town of Carleton Place for change room renovations for the Carleton Place Arena.

The Race Format has changed for 2015 onwards.  A few highlights:

  • Two 400m races and one 200m race
  • Two final races (“A” Final and “B” Final)

Come, be a part of the The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival – Carleton Place’s newest tradition and one of the world’s oldest.
