Looking for the Rose Festival?

Some DragonSports teams participate in Rose Festival, but the races are organized by the Portland-Kaohsiung Sister City Association (PKSCA), not DragonSports USA.

If you'd like to get a leg-up on Rose Festival, many teams practice year-round in Hong Kong-style dragon boats with DragonSports USA. Contact us and we'll try to connect you with a team.
