History

History of our Festival

The whole idea of the Festival came about because of the number of wonderful reviews that were received from the Dragon Boat races that took place during the 2013 Kamloops Senior Games. Despite the complications of paddling on a river, the reviews stated that this was a great new challenge and the site of the race wowed the competitors. Being close to downtown Kamloops, with restaurants and amenities within easy walking distance, racing in the beautiful Riverside Park complete with huge shade trees, and with great spectating views from the walkway and wharf, makes our site second to none.

Combined with “Ribfest” and “Hot night in the city”, the Beer Gardens, wonderful food and live music occupy any time competitors have between races.
