Dragon Boat Festival

Dive into the ultimate summer experience at the Rowan Chamber Dragon Boat Festival, hosted on the sparkling waters of High Rock Lake—the second largest lake in North Carolina. This exhilarating event is not just about racing; it's a celebration of community and teamwork, perfect for businesses, community groups, and churches looking to build bonds and have fun.

With each 42-foot dragon boat powered by 20 paddlers, a drummer setting the rhythm, and a steersperson navigating the course, teams learn the ropes of this ancient sport, no experience required. Embrace the challenge, the camaraderie, and the thrill of what twenty novice paddlers can achieve together on a spectacular day of competition and festivity!

The 10th Annual Rowan Chamber Dragon Boat Festival will be held on Sat., July 27, 2024 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at The Shrine Club on High Rock Lake (6480 Long Ferry Road, Salisbury, NC). Team entries, corporate sponsorships and vendor opportunities are available through the Rowan Chamber.
