Energy pulses. Drums pound. People-powered dragons race across Lake Minocqua and crowds cheer. Is this a dream? No. It's the Minocqua Dragon Boat Festival to be held at Torpy Park on Saturday, August 17, 2019. From the opening ceremony to awaken the spirits of the dragon boats, to the races to the awards ceremony - this is definitely a fun and family friendly day! Culturally themed, hands-on children's activities, Forbidden City Food Court, Dragon Breath Beer Garden and live music on the WXPR Music Stage ensure there is something for everyone. Gather 20 paddles and 1 drummer from your friends, family, or co-workers and you can make up one of our 48 teams. Back for the fourth heart-pounding year, this free event raises funds for the Howard Young Foundation. In the first three years alone, the Festival raised an astounding $620,000, every penny of which goes to fund local healthcare initiatives for our community.
