The Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM) 17th Annual Dragon Boat Festival is a FUN, family-friendly event where dedicated paddlers, volunteers and sponsors partner with KARM in our BIGGEST community fundraiser of the year.  As the largest dragon boat event in East Tennessee, it's an amazing experience to be part of.

The Dragon Boat Festival is a perfect opportunity for your company, church, civic group, friends and family to build camaraderie while helping KARM raise crucial funds so that homeless men, women and children in our community can break the cycle of homelessness.

Each paddler (registrant) will receive his/her own fundraising page to personalize, where supporters can make contributions toward the paddler's (and paddler's team) goal.

Since 1960, KARM has been devoted to helping restore lives in Jesus' name by combining emergency rescue with positive, encouraging relationships. Since 1960, KARM has provided food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, and healing for hurting people in our community. KARM is home to nearly 300 people each night and serves nearly 1,000 meals daily, caring for those in need.

Located at The Cove at Concord Park
