Featured Twin Ports Events: 

Lake Superior Dragon Boat Festival - (2023 date TBD)

Located at the head of Lake Superior, this 400-meter race is a straight course that takes place in the Superior Bay off of Barkers Island. The water between the island and the mainland provides an ideal venue for the race, and historic Barker’s Island is a terrific staging area for not only the race but is also a recreational park for local residents. There is ample space for spectators and all the activities associated with the festival. Many teams erect tents for the weekend, socialize, nap and celebrate on the island. Race heats take place completely in view across the island and happen in quick succession. The event is family friendly, has no admission fee for spectators, and is tons of fun!
