The Riverfront Dragon Boat & Asian Festival is considered one of the premier dragon boat festivals in the United States. In addition to dragon boat racing, the festival offers a variety of live Asian entertainment, abundant ethnic food, martial arts demos, and cultural programming.

This year the race is limited to 90 teams from local community organizations and throughout the Northeast. 

In 2000, Riverfront Recapture held its 1st Dragon Boat Festival and recruited 30 local teams to compete in a 1-day, community-based race.
