September 17 & 18, 2016
Lake Merritt, Oakland, CA
More details coming soon
The California Dragon Boat Association is excited to announce our brand new location for the upcoming 21st Annual Kaiser Permanente San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival! Please save the date for the weekend of September 17 & 18, 2016, as the Festival launches at its beautiful new home on Oakland's Lake Merritt.
Located just a few miles from Treasure Island, the Festival's previous location, Lake Merritt is one of the recreational "jewels" of the Bay Area. Situated in the heart of Downtown Oakland, just minutes from Oakland's vibrant entertainment and restaurant scene. This highly visible site is easily reachable via both public transportation and major freeways.
Our new Festival home is also an ideal race site that will allow us to continue to run our world-class race run "for paddlers by paddlers" for years to come. It has new docks, calm waters and consistently great weather during the fall season.
We have many more exciting announcements to come about this year's Festival. We can't wait to see you this fall at our new location!
