Festival History

Now in its 15th year, the Windsor Essex Dragon Boat Festival for the Cure will take place on Sunday July 9th 2017. Since 2003, over 1000 teams have competed together to raise over 3.4 million dollars to benefit breast cancer care in local hospitals. With this money, breast cancer patients are able to receive the latest in breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment close to home, resulting in a dramatic improvement for thousands of people right here in our community.
