Dragon Boat Racing

Description:

The Dragon Boat Festival which takes place on the River Severn in Shrewsbury is organised by Severn Hospice as a fundraising event.

The 2019 event is scheduled to take place on Saturday 06 July and Sunday 07 July, between 10am and 3pm.  

Teams will compete along a 250m course in 40ft long, brightly coloured boats with up to 16 rowers, a drummer to beat out the rhythm for the rowers, and a professional helmsman provided by the organisers.

There will be hot food, drinks, cakes and ice cream available, and the general public are very welcome to come along and witness the spectacle from the beautiful Quarry Park.
