2021 Dragon Boat Festival

2021 Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival

Each year the Cumberland River Dragon Boat Festival celebrates the importance of the Cumberland River to the City of Nashville. Through a series of four-boat heats that race a 200-meter stretch of the Cumberland River between the Woodland Street Bridge to the Shelby Street Walking Bridge, the Cumberland River Compact has the opportunity to promote the health and enjoyment of the Cumberland River first hand. 

Proceeds allow the Cumberland River Compact to expand education programs, like Creek Critters, to under-resourced schools.
