Each year the Dragon Boat Festival is held in Ottawa during the month of June. This four-day free event features a great festival with vendors, fantastic food, concerts and of course, the dragon boat races. Despite living in Ottawa my whole life, I hadn’t attended this event until last year, where I was amazed by the July Talk and Tribe Called Red concerts.
This year, the festival is held from June 22nd to 25th and features another set of excellent concerts. Although registration has been open for some time for both teams and individual paddlers, the concert announcement was released today!
Thursday, June 22nd: Elwins, Said the Whale, The Sheepdogs
Friday, June 23rd: Kalle Mattson, The Zolas, Dear Rouge
Saturday, June 24th: Twin Flames, Kasador, Darcys, Half Moon Run
