A FREE, family-friendly event over the August Bank Holiday weekend
Thank you to everyone who came on the amazingly sunny Saturday and the wet and windy Sunday. We hope you all had a good time and that we will see you again next year on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August 2019.
“Brillant day at the Canal Festival today. We were there for four hours and didn’t get round to everything. Our children want to go back tomorrow to finish it off! A real credit to the organisers.” Festival attender, 2018
Launched in 2012, the Canal Festival has grown each year, steered by volunteers and supported by partners including Burnley Council and Canal & River Trust. The Festival is now a part of the Super Slow Way arts programme and is managed by Mid Pennine Arts, the charity based in Burnley canalside, and events company Deco Publique, creators of brilliant events like Blackburn’s National Festival of Making, with the volunteers of the Festival Committee representing local communities.
“The best family event I have ever been to! We had the best day ever, lots of laughs, great chat, mega fun! We will be back next year! “
