The Rhode Island Chinese Dragon Boat Races & Taiwan Day Festival is an extraordinary full-day event for the whole family to enjoy! These exciting races continue to use fiberglass Taiwanese-style dragon boats gifted from the Republic of China (Taiwan) and incorporate the skill of flag-catching in each race. But that’s not all…under our giant tent, the Taiwan Day Festival presents some top-notch entertainment! The day is filled with cultural performances, many art & crafts tables, interactive activities, and the always-popular dumpling eating contest.The festival also has a great selection of vendors and food trucks!
