The 11th Annual Save On Foods Dragon Boat Festival will take place July 5-7, 2013 on the beautiful waterfront of downtown Nanaimo, “The Harbour City”. Based on eight successful past events, the Festival will host nearly 100 teams, bring over 3,000 participants to our beautiful city and provide an economic benefit to our community of well over $1,000,000.
The Save On Foods Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival began as a grassroots, community supported event in 2003, focused on raising funds for imaging equipment to assist in the early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer at our local hospital. This initial commitment has continued and grown as the Nanaimo Dragon Boat Festival Society donates 100% of the net proceeds to the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation to assist in improving the diagnostic-treatment process of breast cancer patients. To date, the Festival has donated nearly $500,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation.
