The 21st London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival 2016 will be held on Sunday 26th June at the London Regatta Centre.

The London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival is one of the capital's most exciting cross-cultural sporting festivals for family-friendly fun. With a reputation as Europe?s most prestigious dragon boat festival, it draws visitors from across the UK and overseas.
 
The London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival attracts up to 10,000 people throughout the day, with the spectacular action on the water provided by up to 40 competing club, corporate and amateur teams battling it out for 4 cups. On dry land, the free, family-friendly day-out also features a food festival representing the tastes of South East Asia, live music on the East West Festival stage showcasing new artists from the East and West, martial arts displays, and traditional Chinese lion dancing.

Organised by London Chinatown Lions Club, the fund-raising event donates proceeds to the club's nominated charities, and is supported by The Hong Kong Executives Club, The London Chinatown Chinese Community Centre and the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office.
