This event is a great opportunity for groups to come together and participate in a fun-filled day of competitive racing, which will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Often dubbed as a “canoe on steroids”, dragon boats are 42’ in length and don a traditional dragon head and tail. Dating back more than 2,000 years, this ancient Chinese pastime has captured the attention of the competitive sporting world, making it the second fastest growing water sport.
The festival is currently seeking participants! No experience or gear necessary- just grab twenty (20) friends or coworkers, a paddle and go!

Teams for the Miami International Dragon Boat Festival can be formed by companies, bringing employees together for a day of fun competition and team building. Other teams can come from educational institutions, civic and community organizations, gyms, families and friends etc. This event is open to participants of all sizes and abilities, ages 13 and up. Prior experience is not necessary, practice sessions and equipment will be provided to registered teams. Dragon boat racing supports camaraderie, fitness, competition and a lesson on the ultimate goal of reaching the finish line together!

September is Hunger Action Month. In response, Miami will host a summit to end hunger in South Florida, where 900,000 people go hungry. The event, “What Will it Take to End Hunger” will bring together business leaders, students, government officials, nonprofit organizations, and other concerned citizens to engage in an interactive think-tank discussion on how to end hunger.
The hunger epidemic affects one in four people and is growing rapidly. Florida ranks 12th in the US for food insecurity. Jody Johnson, co-founder of ActionCOACH Team Sage, has teamed up with Feeding South Florida, Joshua’s Heart, the Miami Foundation, Sisters of Charity, city commissioners, and economists to create an event to help end this continuous socio-economic problem.


The event is free of charge and is open to anyone who wants to contribute to ending hunger in South Florida.
