Dragon Boat Festival

dragon boat festival

On Saturday 14 September, the ninth edition of the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will take place. It is one of the biggest summer happenings in Antwerp, in the Kattendijkdok on the Eilandje.

Like last year, the University of Antwerp will be taking to the water with two rowing teams.

  • The first dragon boat will be filled with an experienced team of students.
  • We will open the second dragon boat to University of Antwerp students, alumni and staff members. 


The event will be held in and around the Kattendijkdok, at the CadX event centre (located at the Londenbrug).

All participants should be present starting at 9:00 or at least one hour before the start of the first race of the University of Antwerp team (the race schedule will be announced in early September). The competition will end around 16:00. The prizes will be awarded shortly thereafter.

Support our teams

Come and encourage our teams from 10 a.m. The special race between UAntwerp, UGent and KU Leuven will take place at 3.25 p.m. in the Kattendijk dock, on the Eilandje.
