2023 Dragon Boat Festival Celebration

05/25/2023 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM PT




OCA Sacramento cordially invites you to attend the 28th Annual Dragon Boat Festival: "AAPI in Action".

The Dragon Boat Festival began 2,300 years ago to commemorate the life of Qu Yuan, a Patriotic Poet and statesman, for his loyalty to his country and his advocacy for the rights of the common people in China. This festival is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month in the Lunar Calendar. Since the month of May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in California, OCA Sacramento has selected May to symbolize this great occasion and host our annual signature fundraising event, the Dragon Boat Festival Celebration.

Proceeds from the celebration will benefit and support both OCA Sacramento and OCA National programs to serve the community that align with OCA’s mission such as: summer internships, youth essay contest, scholarship program, economic development summit, civic participation, young professional mentorship, leadership development, educational forums, senior luncheon, hate crime awareness series, and many more civic, cultural, and educational activities and projects.

For sponsorship information, please contact Jinky Dolar at (916) 203-3707.

Thank you for your continued support of OCA’s essential programs and we look forward to seeing you at the Dragon Boat Festival Celebration!
