Saint Martin’s University hosts this fun event that draws paddlers and fans from all over the region.  The festival takes place at the Port of Olympia, Port Plaza, 701 Columbia St. NW in Olympia.

Come cheer us on!

Because the Tacoma Dragon Boat Association will be competing in this all-day event on Saturday, we will not hold practice on Saturday, April 28. Best wishes to everyone competing in this race!

No practice — April 16!

Today’s practice on Monday, April 16 is cancelled because of high winds. We hope to see you on Wednesday!

If you’re a TDBA member, we’re trying to notify you of cancelled practices through Team Cowboy and emails. If you’re not a member, please look at our Facebook page for updates. Thank you.

We apologize for any inconveniences and hope to see you on the water soon!
