So what is this festival? Well now. It's a whole range of things - it's chances to get on the water in canoes and kayaks; it's trying your hand at traditional skills; it's listening to fiddles choons with a pint while boats play on the water or strolling through our market looking at all the products hand made in Glasgow. There will be boat launches and rowing races, steam bending and story telling, sea shanties and Glasgow made Ale. It'll be bright, colourful and surprising. It'll be unexpected, and it'll be really quite boaty! 

The final programme is still coming together but some of the things you can see at the event are on the pages about Shoreside, On the Water, and After Dark.

The Festival runs from 10-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday and is totally FREE except for a few elements which are ticketed - mainly the ceilidh and Castle to Crane.

We're based around the plaza of the Riverside Museum with good car parking and easy transport links to the city centre.
