Dragon Boat Race & Festival

7/5 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Dutchess County’s first Dragon Boat Race and Festival is coming up this July 5th in Poughkeepsie on the Hudson River. That same morning, the public gathers for the Annual Balloon Launch and the festival will continue the excitement for the day featuring dragon boat races along the river and an Asian Cultural Festival with live music, events, arts and artisans, and food vendors.

Do you have a food truck? Do you make handmade craft items, art, or other unique offerings?

We invite you to secure your place to participate – whether you are a food vendor, or an artist selling handmade items; we anticipate this festive event to be well-attended! Other vendors will be accepted on a space-available basis.
