Entries have opened for people to make a splash and enter the Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival this summer.

Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun!

to 16 people paddle each 40′ 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!

This year’s event will take place on June 23rd, and will once again see Gable Events join forces with our Festival charity, MacIntyre, to bring you the 18th spectacular Milton Keynes Charity Dragon Boat Festival, supported by MKFM and Business MK.

The Festival is open to everyone and up to 60 crews are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators.

Willen Lake offers a superb venue for racing and a fabulous day is guaranteed with plenty of bank-side entertainment, food and fun activities for all the family!
