9th Annual Dragon Boat Festival

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – On Saturday, May 2, dragons and warriors alike will descend on the TVA Park at Chickamauga Dam to battle it out while supporting Children’s Hospital Erlanger.

Proceeds go directly to the region’s only children’s hospital to help provide necessary services for sick and injured children in our area. To better serve more than 40,000 children who come to the hospital this year, participants are asked to raise $4,000 per team or $190 per person in pledges. Last year, paddlers from 37 teams raised more than $150,000 for Children’s Hospital. 

Teams can decorate their tents, wear their dragon apparel and cheer throughout the races. Top prizes will be awarded to the fastest teams and those raising the most money.
