The 2019 Taipei International Dragon Boat Festival will take place at the Dajia Riverside Park between June 7 and 9. As a part of 2019 Taipei Crazy Summer activity series, the dragon boat race kicks off a summertime-worth of fun for Taipei City this year.

This year, the tournament has attracted a total of 218 teams from across Taiwan and abroad. Among these teams, 108 teams will compete in the large-size dragon boat category, while 110 teams signed up for the small-size dragon boat race. Roughly 6,000 athletes will compete for an accumulative prize pool worth NT$2.8 million. The event is the largest dragon boat racing tournament in Taiwan.

For the international teams, the organizers have invited 5 teams from abroad to compete in the tournament. The teams hail from Ulan-Ude, Matsuyama, Shanghai, Gold Coast, and Quezon.

For kids, the organizers have arranged for three large-size dragon boats to be placed on exhibition, allowing curious youngsters to experience riding on a dragon boat. The hands-on sessions will take place on May 26, June 1, and June 2 at the Dajia Riverside Park dragon boat dock. As a general guideline, the hands-on session is available from 9 AM through 5 PM, pending actual weather and river conditions.

During the riverside carnival taking place from June 7 to 9, there will be a national-level, egg-standing on high elevation competition, as well as dragon boat festival creative cosplay show. There will also be various stage activities and stalls selling creative products.
