Colorado Dragon Boat Festival in Denver

The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is more than dragon boat racing; it's a celebration of the local Asian community complete with performing arts, Asian marketplace and village, Taste of Asia foodcourt and, of course the spectacular races, in both competitive and community catgories. The Asian marketplace has over 75 arts and crafts vendors and the performing arts stage features both traditional and contemporary Asian and Asian-American performers of martial arts, traditional dances and rock and blues music. The village showcases the cultures of different Asian Pacific communities each year and includes the intimate demonstration area, Gateway to Asia. Kids can be entertained (and educated, but don't tell them that) in the Dragonland section, where there are lots of cultural projects to take part in! A special Dragon Spirit-Awakening ceremony and a traditional Eye-Dotting ceremony awaken the dragon boats and kick off the festivities
