Vancouver Island International Dragon Boat Festival

August 6-7, 2022

On August 6 – 7, 2022, we’re launching the Vancouver Island Dragon Boat Festival on the Gorge Waterway along Victoria’s spectacular harbour system. This exciting weekend of racing draws on FGPC’s experience running many of Vancouver Island’s signature dragon boat festivals, along with innovations garnered through the hands-on experiences of FGPC’s production team at race venues around the world. The 2022 VIDBF will challenge local, regional and international teams across competitive and recreational divisions over a number of exciting formats.

As part of the FGPC Make Every Second Count Campaign for BC Cancer, teams can “add speed” by shaving off one-second from their total time in special championship heats for every $1,000 raised!
