The canal boats and their owners make Burnley Canal Festival so special, we’re really looking forward to seeing lots of you again this year.

The Festival visitors certainly enjoy seeing the boats, particularly those that take part in the Best Dressed Boat and Best Dressed Boater competitions.  We had some cracking looking boats and boaters last year, not quite sure how they going to top that in 2018!

We would love to welcome more trading boats this year, they were certainly a big hit with visitors and kept busy in 2017.

If you’re interested in bringing your boat to the Festival (it’s FREE of course), whether to trade or solely for leisure, please get in touch if you need more information or download a booking form and return it to us and then we will send information to you.

We’re busy fundraising for the 2018 Festival.  If you want to share any ideas or get involved please email us.  We would love to hear from you.

These are a few images from the fun had in 2017.
