Canalside between Spiers Wharf and Applecross Basin, Port Dundas, Glasgow G4 9TB
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, with competitors signing up from late July to battle it out to become the Festival Dragon Boat Champions.
Try out a canoe taster session or watch films 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; or watch world-class parkour, skateboard and BMX performers at the World Youth Urban Games – or even try these out yourself!
