The Dragons are returning to the Waterfront Market this month
February 11th & 12th at the Waterfront Market in Deira

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 06 February 2023: Dubai’s premier destination for everything fresh, the Waterfront Market will welcome paddlers at the Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Race on February 11th & 12th. 

Over 50 teams will compete in the action-packed, thrilling, 200-meter races which will take place in front of the Waterfront Market promenade throughout the 2-day race weekend where spectators can cheer on their favourite teams and enjoy the majestic views that the Market’s promenade has to offer. Races will be scheduled throughout the day with racing starting from 9am through to 5pm on both days. The teams will be divided into five race categories: Open, Mixed, Women, Corporate & Community. 

Mohammed Al Madani, the Waterfront Market Manager said: 'We are proud that the Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Race has become a highly anticipated event on Dubai’s calendar and are happy to welcome back the first race for this year. We encourage our community to be part of this action-packed weekend and enjoy what the Market has to offer from beautiful views to some fun-filled activities for the whole family to enjoy.”

Dragon Boat racing originated 2,500 years ago in China. Dragons, alongside the sun, are traditionally revered in Chinese culture and Dragon Boat racing pays homage to these ancient beliefs.
