Be part of the invasion on September 30th, 2023 at one of the best Dragon Boat Races in the area. We are expecting one of the largest turnouts this year with thousands of spectators and up to 40 teams competing for bragging rights as they row to the beat of drums in their Dragon Boats across the calm waters of Bayou Texar. 

Northeast Pensacola SERTOMA is bringing this event back for the ninth year to benefit our charity partners in the local Pensacola community. We are preparing for a full day of racing, food, and festivities. This all-day festival is complete with Boat racing on Bayou Texar, food trucks, local artists, children’s activities, contests, music, and more. 

The race serves as a great team-building experience for companies, organizations, krewes, non-profits, municipalities, local companies, civic organizations, rowing clubs and so many more. Bring your team to compete or sponsor by funding a team and you will leave with memories, a closer group, sore arms, and the fact that all the fun is going to support the local charities in our community. The fastest teams will have bragging rights for the year and a unique event trophy to showcase the win! 

You can invest in charities that serve our community by becoming a sponsor and/or registering a team and joining in team fundraising to support your favorite charities. All sponsorship levels are still open and there is still room for more teams. You can register and find out more information at PensacolaDragonBoatFestival.com or contact us directly via email: info@pensacoladragonboatfestival.com 

Come have fun, cheer on your crew, and show your local charities the support they all deserve in The Ninth Annual Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival 2023!
