Dragon Boat & Asian Festival (Hartford)
August 18 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Riverfront Dragon Boat & Asian Festival invites community and club teams for a day of fun competition on the Connecticut River on August 18th. Come cheer on the paddlers and celebrate Asian culture at the riverfront at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza.
Mortensen Riverfront Plaza, a landscaped park over I-91 in downtown Hartford that opened to the public in 1999, is the centerpiece of the Riverfront park system.
