Events Description

The Dream Factory is proud to partner with the MB Paddling Association to host one of Canada’s most unique winter events: The Manitoba Ice Dragon Boat Festival! Dragon boating is one of Winnipeg’s most popular summer events, so we are thrilled to “unleash the dragons” on the frozen water this February!

Get your team of 10- 12 together and get ready for a day of winter fun and dragon boat racing like you have never experienced before! This event is guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind experience!

For this event, our dragon boats are fitted to a lightweight frame that houses four long skate – type “blades” , complete with brakes and a steering “oar” which steers the rear set of blades.. Paddle blades are replaced by a hinged “hoof” that has retractabe spikes that grip the ice to allow a “paddling” stroke for propulsion. If you think dragon boating on the water is fun, on ice it is even “cooler“!
