Event Information

The Half Moon Dragon Boat Festival is a free, one-day event on the shores of Half Moon Lake in Eau Claire. Fifty-two teams will compete over a 250-meter course in an energized race to the finish line. The teams paddle sleek, colorful Hong Kong-style dragon boats, provided by the race. There is no charge to attend and spectators are encouraged to come and cheer on the teams.

In addition to the dragon boat races, the festival will include music, activities and food.

All festival proceeds will go directly to the hospice program at Mayo Clinic Health System.
