Events and Things to do in Reno, Nevada
Northern Nevada International Dragon Boat Festival
August 17 at 8:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT
Major League Dragon Boat continues to blaze trails west in Northern Nevada! Join us in the City of Sparks!
With eighty acres of water accommodate swimming, boating, fishing, and scuba diving, Sparks Marina provides the perfect conditions for stellar dragon boat racing. Add in breath-taking views of the nearby mountains, and you’ve got one of the most picturesque venues on the MLDB calendar.
Like all other MLDB festivals, this event is a travel destination offering crews plenty to see and do before and after the races. Adventurous paddlers will want to extend their stay to enjoy Whitewater Park at Rock Park for kayaking, tubing and rafting; while those with a fever for shopping will want to check out Scheels, the largest total sports store in the world, or nearby outlet malls. Seeking nighttime entertainment? Reno is only minutes from downtown Sparks. Whatever your flavour, Sparks has you covered to make your stay a truly memorable one.
Paddlers, weekend warriors, and families are invited to join us in the festivities and excitement throughout the day at Sparks Marina! Visit the many vendors and exhibitors in the Health and Wellness Village, Food Truck Bazaar, Kids Fun Zone, and more.
Gather your friends, family, and colleagues and register your team today to enjoy a full day of racing! Whether you’re a beginner paddler or dragon boat pro, you’re sure to have a wonderful time racing in the City of Sparks!
