Montgomery Dragon Boat Race and Festival

355 Commerce St
Montgomery, AL 36104

About Us:

The Montgomery Dragon Boat Race and Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose purpose is to coordinate this annual Festival as a fundraiser for two local nonprofit organizations, Bridge Builders Alabama and Rebuilding Together Central Alabama . The proceeds from our events go directly to building and maintaining the programs and services these organizations provide to the community.
In our efforts to raise funding for our beneficiaries, we also aim to provide a unique and exciting way to engage the community. The Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival has grown to become the largest outdoor event in the City due to the involvement of a large and diverse group of participants; individuals from fitness clubs, church groups, City departments, banks, local businesses, Maxwell AFB, and other areas. We create a full day of racing for the teams, but also a full day of entertainment for both the paddlers and the public by filling Riverfront Park with vendors and exhibitors, with a focus on local shops and businesses.
