Team Opportunities


The Manulife Dragon Boat Festival provides businesses and organizations with an opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled day, while making a valuable contribution to an important cause - the Nova Scotia Amateur Sport Fund. While the primary focus of the event is the dragon boat racing, the event also includes a day's worth of fun for the entire family.

Activities include Chinese cultural entertainment, the chance to try food from a variety of vendors, tug-of-war, Children's Village, a mini sport fair and plenty of other off-water games and activities. The emphasis of the event is on participating, and contributing, not on winning races. The real "champions" of this event are all the individuals who participate and raise pledges and every company that supports our worthwhile cause.

The non-competitive aspect of the event makes it suitable and enjoyable for teams of all skill levels. Past participants had never picked up a paddle before they began the pre-event practice sessions.
