A charitable event hosted by the Kelowna Dragon Boat Club, in past years the festival has hosted Try Dragon Boating days and raised money for the Central Okanagan Food Bank.

Races include 200m, 500m and a "guts and glory" race, all on Okanagan Lake, out of Tugboat Bay. 

The club was also instrumental in establishing the first paddle trail in the Okanagan, a 27-kilometre span from McKinley Beach to Bertram Creek Park.
