What performances will you see at the 11th Annual Gulf Coast International Dragon Boat Regatta? There is always a lot for the whole family to enjoy both in and out of the water at the Gulf Coast International Dragon Boat Regatta held in Sugar Land, Texas. This event culminates the last race of dragon boat season. Dragon boat racing is the ultimate team-building activity for 25 team members, and many companies as well as community groups come together to race against other teams for their chance at the gold. Our event has come to be known as one of the largest multicultural and team-building activities in Fort Bend bringing with over 5,000 visitors who want to see the action both on and off the water.

Teams with a crew of 25 including the drummer paddling their boats with a small dragon head and a fiery tail to the finish will be exciting to see. Teams participating in the regatta give their all when paddling a boat that measures 40 feet in length, 4 feet in width and weighing 500 pounds. Dragon boat racing not only builds muscles and strength, it builds harmonious relationships. This is a great team building event for people ages 15 and 60 and older.

Our event has come to be known as one of the largest multicultural and team-building activities in Fort Bend County- bringing over 5,000 visitors. While there is a lot of excitement about the activities in the water, there is plenty of action on land. We have a sample of Asian cuisine, colorful arts and crafts, and cultural performance which include Chinese lion dancing, martial arts demonstrations, belly dancing, and many other performances focusing on Asian traditions. This event is a free, family event will. You don’t want to miss it!
