London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival 2018
The annual London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival returns to London’s Regatta Centre on the earlier date of Sunday 3rd June 2018.
The free, family-friendly, fun day out welcomes 10,000 visitors each year from across the UK and overseas, for Europe’s most prestigious dragon boat racing event.
London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival provides an excellent opportunity to experience Chinese culture in the British capital. Throughout the day, more than 40 club, corporate and amateur teams battle it out on the water to take home 6 cups. On land, the event’s food festival will represent the culinary tastes of South East Asia, with each country in the region represented, meanwhile entertainment including live music will be provided on the East West Festival stage (showcasing new artists from the East and West), martial arts displays, and traditional Chinese lion dancing.
2018 marks the 23nd London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival organised by London Chinatown Lions Club, the fund-raising event donates proceeds to the club’s nominated charities, and is supported by Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office, The Hong Kong Executives Club and The London Chinatown Chinese Community Centre.
