| Angela Naff |

The Suncoast Post asks, “What’s On, Suncoast?” Here are some ideas for the area this week from April 19 – 26, 2024.

Sarasota International Dragon Boat Festival

Sarasota International Dragon Boat Festival
5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, Sarasota, FL 34235

In what will promise to be a fiercely competitive Sports Division here on the Suncoast and widely attended Community Division, the event offers racing for established and entry-level teams alike looking to gain competitive experience by competing in a world-class sports facility. Nathan Benderson Park features a 400-acre lake built to FISA specifications. In 2017, the multi-use sports venue hosted the World Rowing Championships, so teams can expect the best racing conditions come race day!

Race distances include 200m, 500m, and the ever-thrilling 2k pursuit for Sport Division teams, while Community Division teams will race 3x500m.

Festival grounds offer something for everyone. Spectators can take in the action and follow the excitement of racing while learning about the sport of dragon boat. Another point of interest is the Health and Wellness Village, where participants and spectators can receive products and services to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Families are invited to bring their children to come to spend time at the races and enjoy the outdoors.
