Mitchell's Place Dragon Boat Race & Festival is back!

We are so excited to be back for the 2nd Annual Mitchell's Place Dragon Boat Race and Festival this year. Now featuring a Bloody Mary Contest!

Mitchell’s Place Dragon Boat Festival brings the most fun and unforgettable experience to the Birmingham area! See how well your team can compete against other local, corporate and community teams to raise awareness for early intervention and autism spectrum disorder. Want to put together a team? Ask your co-workers, friends, spouses, church members, civic leaders, customers, neighbors, and others to fill your team boat of 20 paddlers (minimum of 8 females per team) plus 1 drummer. Dynamic Dragon Boat Racing company provides all dragon boats, gear and instruction (including paddles, life jackets, and coaches), plus an experienced steerer to help you along the way. 

Space for only 25 teams so register today!

This year’s festival is scheduled for Saturday, August 20, 2022 at East Lake Park near Ruffner Mountain. Please join us for a nice summer day, some friendly competition, a kids-zone, food trucks, merchant market, music, and more!
