Barrie Dragon Boat Festival

Proudly Hosted By The Barrie Public Library

Since our 2003 inaugural year the Barrie Dragon Boat Festival has raised over $1.6 million for a variety of local charities including supporting Barrie Public Library. We are so proud of the Library’s role in bringing this bounty to our community. The coming together and support of our civic leaders, governments, businesses, sponsors, donors, volunteers and various organizations is imperative to the continued success of the Barrie Dragon Boat Festival. Paddling together in harmony enriches the quality of life for the citizens of Barrie.
