About Louisiana Dragon Boat Races™

Alexandria Museum of Art is dedicated to the belief that our audience's needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire staff is committed to meeting those needs.

In an effort to become self sufficient and sustainable, the Alexandria Museum of Art endeavors to establish programming that is collaborative in nature, beneficial to the community, and advances our mission to preserve, exhibit, and promote visual art throughout Central Louisiana in a way that contributes to the quality of life.  

In the past 10 years, dragon boating has grown from relative obscurity to 80,000 participants who take part in over 100 festivals in municipalities across the country.  Dragon boating is visually spectacular, easy to learn, and most importantly, extremely safe.  Anyone can do it, regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.  Furthermore, it is a sport where men and women compete together in an unbiased and fun environment.  For these reasons, it has become an extremely popular team building activity for community organizations and corporations.

On Race Day, “Second Saturday Market at the Museum” expands to festival proportions from the Alexandria Museum of Art to the Amphitheater!  Don't be left out of this terrific opportunity to participate in this community event.
