2022 marks the 8th Annual appearance of dragon boats to Pensacola and Bayou Texar. This year, we expect over 48 teams from Pensacola, the Florida Panhandle, other parts of the Southeast will compete over a 250-meter course in an energetic race to the finish line.

8th Annual Pensacola Dragon Boat Festival is to be held at Bayview Park on October 7th & 8th, 2022. This is a special opportunity to market and brand your business in a fun filled family oriented fundraiser for Gulf Coast Kid’s House and Junior Achievement of Northwest Florida. The day’s event consists of dragon boat races, athlete’s village festivities, arts and craft vendors, food vendors, family activities (like face painting, free caricatures, balloons, etc.) and attracted over 7.500 spectators and participants in 2019. The event was covered with pictures and stories by Pensacola News Journal, WEAR TV, Cox Communications, ADX Communications with Cat Country 98.7, ESPN Pensacola 99.1 and News Radio  92.3 radio stations, and magazines and associated online news outlets.
