The 22nd Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival takes place on Saturday 6th July 2024 at Willen Lake and more than 40 teams compete over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators. As well as the exciting races, a wide range of food stalls and fun activities guarantee a fabulous day out for all the family! 

The Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival is mainly aimed at corporate groups who are looking for a great team building day out whilst supporting and raising money for a charity of their choice.

Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today - as well as the most fun! Up to 11 people paddle each 30' boat with a drummer at the front beating time and our helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience required, just plenty of team spirit!
