Glasgow Canal Festival

The first ever Glasgow Canal Festival is coming to North Glasgow on Saturday 22nd July!

The Forth & Clyde Canal between Applecross Basin and Speirs Wharf will spring to life between 11am and 5pm with street theatre, a street food village, canoe taster sessions, guided cycle tours, craft workshop, heritage and wildlife tours, live music and a behind the scenes look inside local landmarks. Find out more about the array of #CanalMagic we’ve got planned here!

The highlight of the day will be the Glasgow Canal Festival Dragon Boat race, with adventurers getting behind the oars and battling to become the first Glasgow Canal Dragon Boat Race Champion!

Please note that sign-ups for would-be dragon tamers are now closed as all boats have been filled! It’s sure to be an epic race!
