CDBF is proud to promote the talents of Asian Americans working in the media, because they serve as role models when Asians typically keep low profiles and don't bring attention to themselves. Well, the media elite of Asian Americans in Colorado deserve to have the spotlight shine on them!
We've invited some of the Asian media once again to serve as emcees n the Main Performing Arts Stage, and you can read all about them!
We've printed poster and flyers about the festival and we're putting them up around town. But we could use your help.
Please download and share either the poster or flyer (they're both two-sided to include as much information as possible), or both, with your friends and families, co-workers, classmates, Facebook pals Google+ circles, Twitter followers... you get the idea.
We especially want to make sure the entire world knows that we have parking at INVESCO Field available ($5/car) with FREE shuttle buses to and from the festival!
Thank you for your support!

Back by popular demand: Parking at INVESCO Field with free buses to the festival! (St. Anthony's lot now added!)
NOW AVAILABLE: We've added parking at the former St. Anthony's Central Hospital parking lot on 17th Ave. across Sloan's Lake from the festival, for $5/car with free shuttle buses running all day!
For the past two years, the most consistent request from festival-goers has been to bring back parking at INVESCO Field with shuttle buses to Sloan's Lake Park. Because of the economic downturn, we weren't able to provide that service anymore.
To be good neighbors, we've made parking at INVESCO a priority!
This year, we're bringing back parking at INVESCO Field, with buses to transport guests to and from the festival. We're charging a small fee -- $5 per car -- to partially offset the cost of renting the parking at INVESCO, and the bus rides will be free of charge and run all weekend. CDBF parking will be in LOT G at INVESCO Field
Please take advantage of this opportunity to park at the stadium and take the convenient bus ride a few minutes to the festival site. We want to be good neighbors to the Sloan's Lake area residents and businesses, and offer our guests a better experience than parking many bocks away and hiking to the festival.
LOT G at INVESCO Field is on the west side of the stadium, along Federal Blvd. The easiest access is from 20th Ave. and Federal. See map below (click to enlarge). Here are directions:
- I-25 northbound to 17th Ave. exit
- 17th Ave. to Mile High Circle.
- North (right) onto Mile High Circle
- I-25 southbound to 20th / 23rd Ave exit.
- Follow off ramp past 23rd Ave to 20th Ave.
- Exit on 20th Ave.
- Federal Boulevard to 20th Ave.
- East on 20th Ave. to Mile High Circle.
Note: If you are a Light Rail rider, the Light Rail line that stops at INVESCO Field will unfortunately not be running that weekend. It's down for construction by RTD July 23 through Aug. 14.
Five ways to get to CDBF:
1. Park ‘n Ride from INVESCO
2. Take RTD bus routes 51, 28 and 20 (all three make stops within a block or right along Sloan's Lake)
3. Bike – we will have two bike corrals located at the east and west side of the festival grounds.
For our handicapable and senior guests, drop-off zone at Sheridan and W. Byron.
Limited disabled parking available at Sloan’s Lake Park; access at Sheridan and 25th (W. Byron) with Handicapped placard.
More handicap parking available at INVESCO Field; the shuttle buses will be wheelchair-accessible.
Many thanks to FOX31 weekend anchor Deborah Takahara and reporter Chris Jose to taking the time to shoot this fun commercial! You can see them both on stage when they emcee the colorful Colorado Dragon Boat Festival Opening Ceremonies at 10 am on Saturday, July 30!
We've announced the CDBF 2011 Honorary Chair, a leader and role model for the Asian community: Dr. Rudolph Lie.
Each year, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival names an Honorary Chair to represent the festival and serves as an inspiration for the area’s Asian and Asian American communities. The Honorary Chair is a role model not only for her or his level of success and leadership, but also for a proven and lifelong commitment to serving the Asian Pacific American communities.
Dr. Lie is a founder of the Asian Pacific Development Center, which provides health services with language translation for Asian patients, including mental health services, which is Dr. Lie's field. Read more about Dr. Lie's accomplishments and his support for the Asian community!
