The Southeast Dragon Boat Festival features an understanding and appreciation of the rich cultural heritage of the people of Southeast Asia. The tradition of Dragon Boat Racing celebrates both the Water Festival holiday and commemorates the use of these boats for maritime and naval activities. During the festival, the RiverStage comes alive with Southeast Asian-inspired traditional entertainment, as well as contemporary and non-traditional performances.
An addition to this year's festival is the Miss Southeast Asia Pageant. The contestants come from as far north as Maine and south as Florida. Their backgrounds range from Cambodian, Filipino, and Vietnames to Hmong. In addition, the Main Stage will feature a break dancing competition and other cultural music and dance acts.
