The Toronto International Dragonboat Festival is an annual event held near the end of June. The festival consists of dragonboat racing at the Toronto Islands.

The premises of the Dragonboat are based off the Chinese tradition of racing dragon shaped boats down a river yearly. At the Dragonboat festival in Toronto, over 200 teams and 5,000 participants compete. The participants come from different countries. The Dragonboat festival's proceedings benefit charity. The beneficiary was the Canadian Diabetes Association.
