2024 Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival
June 21-23, 2024
Mooney’s Bay

Get ready for a fun-filled, action-packed weekend of races and music at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival returning to Mooney’s Bay from June 21–23. This year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa (BBBSO) is honoured to be a beneficiary through the Ottawa Dragon Boat Foundation (ODBF). 

We encourage our community to come out, get involved, and have a blast! You can sign up now to enter a team race in the ODBF Pledge Race and help raise funds for this year’s chosen charities, including BBBSO. Psst… you don’t have to be a pro-athlete to compete; this event is about teamwork! Not only will you experience the rush of the races, but you’ll also be supporting a great cause that makes a real difference in our community.

Events like this can’t happen without the unwavering support of our community and there are TONS of opportunities to volunteer and give back. By lending a hand, you’re not just helping the event, you are also directly supporting BBBSO and our mission to empower youth through mentorship. That’s pretty cool! Volunteering is a fun and rewarding way to get involved and make a positive impact. Sign up to volunteer today—it makes all the difference!

Please note: When you register to volunteer, please indicate that you are volunteering on behalf of BBBSO when asked on the form. We want to show the Dragon Boat team how much BBBSO’s supporters appreciate this opportunity! Please also send us a DM to let us know, so we can keep track and thank you.
