    We tend to get the same question year over year, when do you start planning for the next Festival? Truth is, we have already began planning! Barrie Public Library’s 2020 Barrie Dragon Boat Festival will take place Saturday, August 22, 2020 at Barrie’s Heritage Park. Online registration opens in January 2020, so please stay tuned as you won’t want to miss our Early Bird privileges!

    In the meantime, start getting your plan in place for next year! New and returning teams are always welcome at the Barrie Dragon Boat Festival, so start chatting with family, friends and colleagues about the opportunity to get together and do something really amazing for your community. It’s a fun, often new experience for everyone and open to all skill levels. Not only does participating in the Barrie Dragon Boat Festival build camaraderie, but the impact ripples throughout the community as charities of all sizes and backgrounds greatly benefit from the funds raised through team fundraising campaigns.

    So, which charity will you be paddling for!?
