Project Description

DEI Opportunity Grantee: Colorado Dragon Boat Festival

The mission of the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival is to build bridges of awareness, knowledge and understanding between the diverse Asian Pacific American (APA) communities and the general public through cultural education, leadership development and athletic competition.

The Colorado Dragon Boat Festival started in 2001 at Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver and has been there ever since. The event now features an array of food vendors, an Asian marketplace featuring gifts, artisans and organizations, Dragonland interactive kid’s zone and over 100 performances on five stages that feature traditional Asian to contemporary Asian American culture.
