Rotary Clubs of Duluth and Superior will host the Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival (LSDBF) Kickoff Party on Friday, March 1 at the Cedar Lounge. LSDBF will announce the new theme “Paddle With a Purpose: Every Family Should Have a Home” and new charitable partnerships. The event will feature Superior mayor Jim Paine, Barb Certa-Warner (Harbor House Crisis Shelters), Maude Dornfeld (Life House Duluth), and David Clanaugh (Western Lake Superior Habitat for Humanity).

LSDBF is offering $100 registration discount to dragon boat teams who register on March 1st at the Cedar Lounge. Charlie Parr will open for the Black-eyed Snakes at 8pm.

The purpose of the Festival is to raise money for the festival’s charitable partners and the Twin Ports Rotary Clubs. This year’s event will be held Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th.
Our charitable partners will have a great opportunity to showcase their incredible work, and a portion of the festival’s proceeds will be donated to their projects,” says Meghan Blair, Co-Chair of this year’s festival. “Teams, paddlers and the public will have the opportunity at the festival to learn more about each organization’s efforts in reducing housing insecurity in the Twin Ports. We encourage everyone to get involved and be a part of the solution.”
