Dragon Boats are one of the most famous and important folk arts in Dongguan. The Shilong Town area is China’s most famed Dragon Boat town.

Dragon boat racing is a traditional and expected part of the Dragon Boat Festival, but aside from the obvious character of it, Dragon Boat racing is an important and healthy sport. Dongguan’s dragon boat team practice year-round and has won several championships and international competitions.

Dongguan’s government has gotten personally involved in the stimulation of the activity. Annually, the local government organizes the Dongguan Dragon Boat Festival, a special dragon boat contest to encourage the development of this fantastic sport and the community’s involvement. The festival includes a series of activities, which provide a great experience for participants, such as the International Dragon Boat Contest, Dongguan Shilong Cup Dragon Boat Contest, entertaining parties, fireworks shows, International Female Beach Volleyball Competition, X-games, folk song shows and food carnivals, among many other events.
