Welcome to The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival

On September 10, 2016, the town of Carleton Place will once again find Riverside Park teaming with excitement. Preparing for another successful year, we plan on another full festival with 46+ teams – over 1100 paddlers and drummers coursing across the finish line with a large number of spectators cheering them on. Visitors from all over Eastern Ontario are drawn to this event.

The Race Format has changed for 2015 onwards.  A few highlights:

  • Two 400m races and one 200m race
  • Two final races (“A” Final and “B” Final)

Come, be a part of the The Fall 400™ Dragon Boat Festival – Carleton Place’s newest tradition and one of the world’s oldest.

The mission of the Festival Committee is to host the best (fun & well-run) small, one-day dragon-boat event in Eastern Ontario.  We are a non-profit organization that returns 100% of the proceeds back to the community.

For 2015, The Fall 400 donated $15,000 to the Arena Building Fund of the Town of Carleton Place for change room renovations for the Carleton Place Arena.
