Glasgow Canal Festival

The second annual Glasgow Canal Festival promises a diverse and exciting lineup of activities on Glasgow’s iconic Forth & Clyde Canal between Spiers Wharf and Applecross Basin. Whether strolling through the makers’ market, soaking up some live music in the sun, trying your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, getting crafty in an arts workshop or sampling the street food village, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Key highlights of this year’s festival include the ever-popular Dragon Boat Racing;  try out a canoe taster session or catch a film in the Sustrans pedal-powered cinema; take a wildlife tour of urban nature reserve Hamiltonhill Claypits and enjoy breathtaking views over the city of Glasgow; watch world-class parkour, skateboard and BMX performers at the World Youth Urban Games; and explore an interactive exhibition at the National Theatre of Scotland headquarters Rockvilla.

The event runs 10.30-17.00 on Saturday 25th August 2018 and will take place on the canalside between Spiers Wharf and Applecross Basin.
