2015 San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival

Are you ready for an unforgettable weekend of racing and fun along the San Francisco Bay? Then make plans to attend the 20th annual San Francisco Dragon Boast Festival. Taking place on Saturday and Sunday September 19 and 20, the races kick off from Treasure Island. Located in San Francisco Bay, this is a spectacular setting for a day on the water. With Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the famous San Francisco skyline as a backdrop, it's an inspiring place to compete against the country's best teams.

Even if you're not participating, you can experience the thrill of the races by being a spectator. There are dozens of races scheduled throughout the event, so you will get to see plenty of action on the bay. It's also a great way to meet people from all over the globe who have a common interest in dragon boats. There's a marketplace where you can shop for tasty food from local San Francisco vendors and festival souvenirs. Live entertainment will be provided throughout the weekend, and there's even a Dragon Land play area for the kids where they can play games, see puppet shows and get their very own balloon animal to take home.

Treasure Island is only about a 15-minute drive from our stylish hotel near Union Square. If you're coming to participate in this fun San Francisco event, make your reservations with us. Not only will you enjoy excellent accommodations that include a health club, spacious rooms and attentive service, but you can also take advantage of our prime location. After the day's festivities, you can easily enjoy a memorable night in San Francisco just outside our door.
