Rickmansworth Canal Festival – 20th and 21st May 2017

The Rickmansworth Festival takes place on the third weekend of May every year and celebrates canals, the community and the environment. The 24th Festival, the highlight of the town’s annual calendar and the finale of Rickmansworth Week, will be held on the 20th and 21st May 2017.

The top attraction for many is the wonderful array of canal boats from across the country - a terrific spectacle, with at least 100 craft of many types and histories moored along the towpath up to four deep. But there are things to do, see and enjoy whatever your interests, and whatever your age.

The Rickmansworth Festival started as a purely canal based event in 1993, as part of the British Waterways “Canals 200” celebration that year.

The first was on a large scale, incorporating the Aquadrome as the main location for land based activities. Subsequent Festivals were much smaller, but they steadily grew in size and scope. At least 20,000 people now come each year.

The Festival now occupies part of the Aquadrome, the towpath between Stockers Lock and Batchworth, and the area round Batchworth Lock. You’ll find a range of music and performing arts, displays and presentations, traders, boats and catering.
