Dragon Boat Summer Learning Festival



Partners In Education hosts the annual Dragon Boat Festival and race as well. Dragon Boat racing is a team water sport that is growing fast worldwide. The annual Toledo Dragon Boat Festival draws over 30 local businesses and organizations to participate with teams. Each team consists of a 25 person roster that includes 20 paddlers, 1 steersman, 1 drummer, and 3 alternates. The festival draws over 700 paddle team participants, 100+ event volunteers, and 5,000 to 10,000 event spectators. Volunteers can help with loading and unloading the boats, registration of paddlers, extra hands at the Summer Learning Village and more. 

The Dragon Boat Summer Learning Festival also serves as a showcase for summer learning. Our Summer Learning Festival stresses the importance of summer learning for area youth in helping close the achievement gap and supports healthy development of students and families in Northwest Ohio.
