18th Annual Gateway Dragon Boat Festival

August 17

The Gateway Dragon Boat Festival is unlike any other event in St. Louis. Hop aboard a traditional Chinese boat as part of a team of 20 paddlers – plus, a drummer – or join thousands of spectators to watch as the race unfolds.

In between race rounds, enjoy cultural performances, delicious food, hands-on games and arts and crafts. To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, the 18th annual festival will include a dragon dance, a lion dance and taiko drummers.
