Description

London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the creation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at London’s Regatta Centre on Sunday 25th June 2017.

Commemorating 20 years since the handover, London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival forms parts of a series of events organised or supported by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in London during 2017. First organised in 1985, Europe’s most prestigious dragon boat racing event is internationally renowned as one of the UK’s most exciting cross-cultural sporting occasions, and the free, family-friendly day out welcomes up to 10,000 visitors each year.

The 22nd edition of London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will see 40 competing club, corporate and amateur teams battle it on the water throughout the day for 6 cups. On land, the event’s accompanying food festival will represent the culinary tastes of South East Asia, with entertainment including live music on the East West Festival stage (showcasing new artists from the East and West), martial arts displays, and traditional Chinese lion dancing.

The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, London (HKETO, London) is the official representation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government in nine countries, namely Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, Russia and the United Kingdom. Its mission is to promote and strengthen Hong Kong's economic, trade and cultural links with these countries.
