5th Annual Cooper River Dragon Boat Festival
Registration Is Now Open!
The 5th Annual Cooper River Dragon Boat Festival offers a day of great fun and team-building for novice or intermediate community teams, as well as an opportunity for competitive sport teams to compete in an ERDBA qualifying event. Plans are well underway as we anticipate being able to host this year's event! The health and welfare of our participants and volunteers is our #1 priority and we will have safety protocols in place to keep everyone safe and have a great time!
Test your team's abilities in 200 and 500 meter races, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. Cooper River is the ideal water venue for dragon boating, drawing praise from athletes and international experts for its sheltered, straight, race course. At the heart of the venue is the newly renovated Cooper River Park, home to the Camden County Boathouse, a spectacular facility with all the finest amenities.
Easy access – just minutes from the NJ Turnpike, Interstate 295, Route 130 and Route 70 – and ample hotel and parking options make this event a "must attend" for your team, and the perfect early entry opportunity for sponsors looking to “own” a captive audience.
Expect a day of friendly competition, brought to you by your host, the Cooper River Dragon Boat Club, formerly known as the River Sirens and produced by one of North America's best dragon boat organizers, 22 Dragons .
We are thrilled that this year's Cooper River Dragon Boat Festival will be once again supporting the Food Bank of South Jersey. We are asking all participants to bring a non-perishable item that can be donated to help feed the hungry of South Jersey. @foodbankofsouthjersey!
