The Tacoma Dragon Boat Association (TDBA) is pleased to present the annual Rainier Dragon Boat Festival sponsored by MultiCare Health System! This regatta has become one of the premier competitive dragon boat events in the Pacific Northwest. The Festival is sanctioned by the Pacific Dragon Boat Association USA (PDBA), one of three regional affiliates of the United States Dragon Boat Federation (USDBF), which is a member of the International Dragon Boat Federation (IDBF).
Competitive teams from the Pacific Northwest as well as corporate and community teams from around Tacoma will compete! The race course is 500 meters. The race venue is located at Thea’s Park on the Foss Waterway in beautiful downtown Tacoma, WA. The public is invited to watch the races at Thea’s Park.
A team — including a community team — consists of 20 people in a dragon boat. Teams should be prepared to stay at the event all day (from about 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.). We’ll provide more details soon.
Thank you to MultiCare Health System and CHI Franciscan Health for sponsoring this event!
