The Glasgow Canal Festival is North Glasgow's most exciting annual festival, with a packed programme of arts, watersports, interactive adventures, heritage tours, boat races and much much more! The festival  takes place along the banks of the iconic Forth & Clyde Canal, a 5-minute walk from Cowcaddens Subway station, and it brings the people of the local community together with audiences from across the wider city to enjoy the natural and urban landscape in this beautiful, heritage-rich part of the city.

Come and while the day away in our deckchair lounge, listen to live music by a range of local musicians, discover hidden storytelling corners, take part in a family-friendly arts workshop, try your hand at canoeing or race down the canal with a team of friends. There's really something for everyone and audiences always report discovering and enjoying something they didn't expect and had never tried before.

Watch this space for the announcement of programme details for 2019...

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