2 9 th Annual Dragon Boat Festival, 2007 The History of the Dragon Boat Festival: The Dragon Boat Festival dates back to 277 B.C. China during the Warring States period. A descendent from the royal family and a poet scholar, Qu Yuan became prime minister only to be purged from his position due to his objection to the use of force and violence. Banished to the countryside, Qu Yuan was grieved by the fact that he could no longer save his country from the turbulence into which it had fallen and threw himself into the Milo River of Hunan Province. Upon hearing of Qu’s actions, villagers gathered into their boats and rushed to the river in a united attempt to save Qu. Alas, they were too late but the solidarity and cooperation of the villagers in a united cause is the tradition that is carried down to the present with the annual Dragon Boat Festivals around the world.
