Burnley Canal Festival 2017

26-27 August 2017

Thanks to support from Super Slow Way, 2016 was the biggest Festival yet as 12,000 people took a Slow Boat to Burnley for an enlarged, bicentenary edition of the Burnley Canal Festival.  If you joined us, we hope you’ll want to come again.  If you didn’t, well you missed some fantastic things, but we’ll be back in August, so make sure you come along this time!

There will be music, dance, performance and spectacle, fun fair, food, workshops, craft stalls and waterborne activities to take you on a trail of magic and discovery through Burnley’s unique canalside environment and heritage.

We are delighted to be working on the festival again, continuing our partnership with events company extraordinaire, Deco Publique, creators of brilliant events like Morecambe’s Vintage by the Sea.  The Festival will be supported once again by the Super Slow Way programme for Pennine Lancashire.

Join the Festival Facebook page to make sure you’re the first to know what happens next!
