Riverfront Dragon Boat & Asian Festival (Hartford)
August 15 @ 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 15, 2020. Come cheer on the paddlers and celebrate Asian culture at the riverfront at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza.

A stage at the river’s edge provides a scenic venue for a rich variety of performances, with seating for 2,500 people on grassy terraces that descend from the plaza to the Riverfront.
