Trumansburg, New York 14886

  • Dragon boat races, food and market vendors, family activities, cultural performances and more
  • World class racing with certified race officials and experienced race management

“The Finger Lakes Dragon Boat Festival is the one of the few dragon boat events, in this part of the US, that draws from all the major cities in the Northeast Corridor that provides both well produced event and the beautiful setting of Central New York. The festival in Ithaca is becoming a “must” on the race schedule of many teams. “

– Ken Wong, Philadelphia Dragon Boat Association, U.S. National Champions

FCC-Rochester will not be organizing an official registration for this event. We are hoping for an informal gathering of families sometime during the festival.
