Dragon Boat Race
The Dutchess Dragon Boat Race & Festival has become a signature summer event for the Mid-Hudson Valley.
Hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Dutchess County, all proceeds from the event go towards the non-profit’s mission of building strength, stability and self-reliance through safe and affordable homeownership in our community. Habitat Dutchess partners with hard-working families to build and repair homes so they can thrive. When homeowners thrive, communities thrive. When communities thrive, we all thrive. Participation in the Dutchess Dragon Boat Race & Festival directly supports that mission.
On Saturday, July 20, 2019, forty-two foot long dragon boats will be racing down the majestic Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, New York, in head-to-head competition. Spectators, along with food and merchandise vendors, will line the shore during this day-long extravaganza.
