The 2019 Montana Dragon Boat Festival registration is open soon and we are excited to announce the event will be moving to Bigfork Bay on Flathead Lake! The Montana Dragon Boat Festival has become a favorite since its founding in 2012, each year drawing thousands of people to the shores of Flathead Lake for two days of exciting races. The move to Bigfork Bay promises calm waters and smooth paddling. 


The 2019 Montana Dragon Boat Festival will be held on September 7th and 8th. The Bigfork Area Chamber of Commerce will be organizing this year’s event. While the change of venue and organizer promises new and exciting activities and races, Kevin Kwan and his team from Elemental Dragon Boats will continue as the race director. 


The move to Bigfork also provides the opportunity to stay, play, shop and recreate within walking distance of the Montana Dragon Boat Festival. The 2019 festival will be held on Grand Drive, just a few steps from Bigfork’s iconic Electric Avenue. 


Lodging opportunities abound around Bigfork. Stay in the village or check out Woods Bay just 5 miles south (shuttles will be provided to the event). VisitBigfork.org/planning-a-visit/ for a list of hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts and vacation rentals. While you are there, explore Bigfork.org to find out what makes Bigfork so special. 


The Bigfork Area Chamber of Commerce and its members welcome you! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Call 406-837-5888 or emailchamber@bigfork.org with any questions.
