The canal boats and their owners make Burnley Canal Festival so special.  Festival visitors certainly enjoy seeing the boats, particularly those that take part in the Best Dressed Boat and Best Dressed Boater competitions.

We would love to welcome more trading boats this year.  If you’re interested in bringing your boat to the Festival, whether to trade or solely for leisure, please download a booking form and return it to us.

We’ve started the 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.
