Multiple people in a long Dragon Boat, paddling on Lake Simcoe.

*Registration is Now Full*

Back by popular demand, we are thrilled that our Learn to Paddle Sessions will return this summer, generously sponsored by our friends at Tim Hortons! These FREE sessions offer the opportunity for our community to experience the thrill of dragon boat racing.

Getting ready to celebrate our 20th Barrie Dragon Boat Festival on August 17, the library is proud to be a leader in the local dragon boat community, showcasing this fun sport that brings people together.

Beginning with a mini dry land introductory lesson, participants will learn about the art of paddling then take in the beauty of Barrie's waterfront while out on Kempenfelt Bay. Registration is required and expected to fill up quickly, so don’t wait!
