FTS_art_card_dragonboat_festival-LIONThis year, CDBF’s food and beverage vendors are going CASHLESS for your convenience! It’s easy, just load a CDBF card at one of the designated loading stations with cash or your credit card, and then use it to pay for your food or drink!

The card is a special commemorative edition VISA cash card (check out our design above).

You can reload the card during the festival and use the balance anywhere VISA is accepted outside the festival!

People using the CDBF Cash Card will have special access to discount and deals from our vendors, which will be good for 90 days after the festival. Just use your smartphone to scan the QR codes on display during the festival and you’ll see a page with deals provided by our vendors and partners!
