Commemorative Picnic Table


Inspired by the summers of our youth and those golden memories of days on the water and nights around the bonfire. The people we spent those summers with became more than just friends, they became family. Some we saw summer after summer, and some never again but the memories linger on. That same level of shared memory and community has grown out of our 24-year-old festival.

We look to recreate that joyful nostalgia in the same way that younger versions of ourselves preserved our ability to later ruminate over signed yearbooks, t-shirts and embark on pilgrimages to see the marks we added to cabin doors and mess hall picnic tables.

Visit The Cabin and sign your name or leave a message on the 2017 Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival Commemorative Picnic Table.  Afterwards head over to the ODBF silent auction tent for the opportunity to bid on the table so that you can take home this lasting memory of your summer spent on the glistening shores of the Rideau River.
