The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is celebrating its 18th year of celebration and promotion of Asian culture in Colorado!
This enormous feet of putting on a safe, fun, educational festival that draws over 125,000 attendees over the 2 days is no easy task. This festival would not be possible without the dedication of our Dragon Family.
Dragon 5280 is run by an amazing Board, 2 Full-time Staff Members, 2 Seasonal Staff, and the rest are all Volunteers! Together we are able to build bridges of awareness, knowledge, and understanding.
Our Dragon Family includes the amazing performers and groups that are showcased at the festival. Our 5 Stages offer endless edutainment for all audience members.We pride ourselves at being one of the only festivals that encourages our audience members to get up and interact with the different cultures. We call this participASIAN.
Our family would not be complete without our energetic, fun, and slight competitive race teams. The Dragon Boat Races have become a family affair with multiple generations padding with and against each other. The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is proud to be one of the first Dragon Boat competitions in Colorado.
Last but not least, we would not be here if not for the amazing contributions from the Pan-Asian communities and their leaders. Each year the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival recognizes our important community leaders with the Honorary Chair and Honorary Patron Awards.
