This family-friendly event, which is produced by Bucks County Dragon Boat Association (BCDBA) and presented by St. Mary Medical Center, offers a day of fun, culture and competition with the overarching goal of “paddling out hunger” in the region.

The Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival will be held in scenic Core Creek Park (Langhorne, Pa) and registration is open to teams of all levels – community to sport.

When you’re not racing, you and your fan club can check out the many vendors and cultural presentations that will be offered throughout the day.

For additional information about registration, waivers, scheduling practice sessions, team composition and fundraising please refer to our Festival Rules and Regulations and Festival Q and A.

Bucks County Dragon Boat Association is proud to produce this festival.

Team Composition:

Any Sports Mix teams utilizing the event as an ERDBA qualifier must abide to the 50/50 gender ratio. In addition, roster checks will apply to these teams. Any other Sports Mix team NOT using the event as an ERDBA qualifier will abide by the 60/40 gender ratio (12 male paddlers & 8 female paddlers).  For each paddler a mixed team is short for the gender requirement a paddler of the opposite gender must sit as well (e.g. a mixed team with only 7 female paddlers may only race 11 male paddlers, even if a 12th male paddler is available).   

 

  

No Prior Experience Necessary!

Anyone can participate in the Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival. All you need are two dozen friends, family members or co-workers who are interested in giving dragon boat racing a try!

Each team can register up to 24 paddlers (no less than 18) plus a drummer and a steersperson. A steersperson will be provided for those teams who need one.

Cost:
$1350/Community crews
(includes entry to the race, one practice for community division teams and all the equipment necessary to race)

Paddling Out Hunger in Our Community

More than 900,000 individuals in the Delaware Valley are presently at risk of food insecurity. This is a fact that BCDBA is working to change through the Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival. With the help of our festival sponsors, vendors and participating teams, we will take a significant step toward realizing our vision of “paddling out hunger” in the region.

Proceeds and food donations from the festival will benefit our charity partner, the Bucks County Housing Group, which operates food pantries in Doylestown, Penndel and Milford Square.
