Dragon Boat Festival 2021

LiveDAYBREAK held the first-ever Utah-based Dragon Boat Festival on August 28! This incredible event featured 19 teams racing official 40’ dragon boats and a Chinese festival including cultural performances, activities for kids and food trucks!

We raised over $10,000 from the Dragon Boat portion of the festival and donated all of the proceeds to The Refugee & Immigrant Center - Asian Association of Utah charity.

Here are some of our favorite highlights from the event!
