What is Dragon Boat Festival?

Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) is beyond excited to present the 20th annual Dragon Boat Festival on June 15, 2024! 

The KARM Dragon Boat Festival is a community event where teams made up of companies, church groups, and friend groups compete against each other in 40-foot-long boats with 20 rowers and 1 lead drummer. It's a full day of great competition, to see who'll be this year's fastest on the water, and includes food trucks, entertainment, team and individual awards, and much more. 

How does all of this help those in need? When you sign up to be part of KARM's Dragon Boat Festival you and your friends can make a big impact for our Knoxville neighbors experiencing homelessness and addiction through your team’s participation and your individual fundraising effort.
