After careful consultation with our title sponsor and advisory board regarding the health and safety of everyone who attends the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival – our teams, our sponsors, volunteers and spectators – we have made the very difficult decision to postpone the celebration of our 25th Anniversary originally scheduled for September 12th, 2020 to September 11th, 2021.
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation and not knowing what the next few months hold. The health and safety of all of you is the most important thing and given the numbers that are attracted to the event each year, it would be extremely difficult to ensure your safety should our nation continue to be faced with this pandemic. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for all of you, but we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.
Thanks to all of you for your outpouring of support and to all of those who have reached out to us during this time. We continue to keep the health and safety of each of you in our thoughts.
We look forward to celebrating our 25th Anniversary with all of you next year!
