Welcome!


Residents and visitors are invited to explore the Union Canal between the Lochrin Basin and Harrison Park and to meet some of the great organisations that operate year round on and near to the canal. There will be loads of free activities and entertainment as you travel along the canal in the heart of Edinburgh.

We also have a new style Raft Race that is FREE to enter. All equipment provided, just bring decorations, costumes and enthusiasm!

If you need a reminder of what a fabulous 2023 event the Festival was, make sure to check out our Facebook Page for photos and all the action.
