Mission Statement

The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival is North America's largest dragon boating festival taking place at Mooney’s Bay Park. The four day celebration offers free admission to multiple stages with world class programming, marquee concerts, amusement attractions, sports demonstrations, a variety of artisans, exhibitors, delicious culinary treats, beach-side bar, children’s area and non-stop racing. Join us for one of the biggest summer festivals in Ottawa!


Every year, many volunteers help make the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival the success that it is. Without the hard work and dedication of the volunteer team this event would not happen.
