Chinatown Dragon Boat Race for Literacy


Calling all aspiring paddlers! Join the TAP-Chicago Typhoon as we take on other Chicagoland teams at the Dragon Boat Race for Literacy in Chinatown. After enjoying the race, we’ll get dim sum or lunch at a local restaurant.

Dragon boating with TAP-Chicago is great way to make new friends, get a workout, experience the thrill of competition, and thrive in a team environment. Paddling experience and athletic prowess are appreciated but not required.

Those who do not want to race are welcome to cheer on the team and enjoy the festival in picturesque Ping Tom Memorial Park. Come find us at our team tent with the big TAP-Chicago banner.

The 2015 TAP-Chicago Typhoon dragon boat team is sponsored by the Overseas Community Affairs Council of Taiwan, Cathay Pacific, Trust Air Cargo USA, and Ascene Chicago. Thank you for your generous support!
