The Dream Factory River City Dragon Boat Festival – June 1st and 2nd

June 1st and 2nd
Manitoba Canoe and Kayak Center - 80 Churchill Drive


The Dream Factory is proud to be the new partner of the Manitoba Paddling Association to host one of the summer’s biggest events: The Dream Factory River City Dragon Boat Festival! Dragon boating is one of Winnipeg’s most popular summer events, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!

The festival is a fundraiser for The Dream Factory, a Winnipeg based charitable organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams for Manitoba kids who are battling life- threatening illnesses. We need paddlers and teams to raise funds and help us to make dreams come true for kids who desperately need a break from hospitals, medical treatments and the very adult challenges that come with serious illness. All funds raised stay in Manitoba to help Manitoba kids.

So, what are you waiting for? Get your team of 20 friends, family, and/or co-workers together and get ready for great fun while helping a great cause! All teams are guaranteed 3 races (weather permitting).

With instruction and race supervision by the Manitoba Paddling Association, safety is a top priority. Boats, paddles and personal floatation devices will be provided, so register your team and get ready for fun! Practice sessions start weekday evenings in early May.

The Top 8 Fundraising Teams will again be recognized in a special feature race.

Grab your credit card and click on the “Sign up today” or “Register for this event” link below and register your team today!

Whether you are a long-time dragon boater or have never paddled before – this festival is a great way to have fun and help us to make dreams come true for some very special kids!

Thank you for helping us bring dreams to life!
