Spectator Information

Rowbust would like to welcome everyone to

the Fanshawe Dragon Boat Festival!

 We have changed locations on Fashawe Lake!  Now you can watch the races from bleachers on the beach in the Day-Use Area in Fanshawe Conservation Area!

Plan for an exciting day of races! You'll be outside so bring your lawn chair and dress for the weather. Races will take place rain or shine with the only exception being for lightning & thunder.  

On Festival Day, Saturday June 8, 2019 there will be no charge to enter Fanshawe Conservation Area.  There is ample parking at the NEW RACE SITE and you won't need to take a bus!

There will be lots to see and do at this year's festival.  Cheer on your favourite teams as they race on beautiful Fanshawe Lake.  Visit the Vendor Village to grab a bite to eat from the on-site food vendors then do some shopping and check out all the cool merchandise for sale at the Festival.  

Lots of activities are happening throughout the day - there's something for everyone!
