Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival

Follow the lead of Hongkongers and make a party out of an ancient Chinese festival under the modern skyline of Victoria Harbour. Enjoy boats, beers and the cheers of hundreds of thousands of spectators — it's the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival!

Every year, thousands of the world's top dragon boat athletes battle it out at the CCB (Asia) Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races — three days of intense racing that fill the harbour with heart-pounding action, a profusion of colour and the sounds of drummers and fans cheering paddlers on to the finish line.

Only Hong Kong could take an ancient Chinese tradition and transform it into a modern sport and international party. Check out the highlights below and experience it for yourself at the 2019 Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival!
