About Blue Light Festival

Nee Naw, nee naw! The hugely popular Blue Light Festival returns to Riverside on 22 & 23 September!

As well as getting up close to an amazing array of vehicles both old and new from the fire brigade, police and ambulance services – this year you can also enjoy an RNLI lifeboat! There will be special demos every hour including car cutting and chip pan fires. Younger ones can dress up in junior Fire Fighter uniforms and enjoy the FREE kids zone with fairground rides, the Fun Bus, face painting and arts and crafts. Families can also take part in our festival competition by dressing up as an emergency responder, taking a photo and posting to Facebook – remember to tag @Riverside.GlasgowMuseums.

And to top it all off we will also have some tasty delights in our street food vans!

Open 10am - 5pm both days.


PLEASE NOTE: We expect it to be very busy so where possible please use public transport to avoid over congestion in the car park.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Blue Light Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
