Glasgow Canal Festival 2019

Back by popular demand, the Glasgow Canal Festival returns to Glasgow’s iconic Forth & Clyde Canal between Spiers Wharf and Applecross Basin on Saturday 20th July 2019!  Don’t miss it!

The Glasgow Canal Festival is North Glasgow’s most exciting annual festival, with a packed programme of arts, watersports, interactive adventures, heritage tours, boat races and much more!

Uniquely, the festival takes place on the banks of the Forth & Clyde Canal, just a 5-minute walk from Cowcaddens Subway station. The event celebrates the local community and shares the story of the canal’s incredible heritage.

Enjoy an afternoon listening to live music performed by a range of local musicians,  discover hidden storytelling corners, take part in a family-friendly arts workshop, try your hand at canoeing or race down the canal with a team of friends. There’s really something for everyone and audiences always report discovering and enjoying something they didn’t expect and had never tried before.
