Village Notice Board





takes place on Saturday August 8th & Sunday August 9th 11am – 5pm both days

Thousands and Thousands of visitors came along and enjoyed our fantastic canal festival weekend last year and the most popular word used to describe it was AWESOME!

Festival 2015 is shaping up to be every bit as brilliant!

  • FREE parking
  • FREE mooring
  • FREE entry (except Open Gardens) 

The waterfront will WOW you. Stroll past a long line of trade and workboats and soak up the atmosphere. Two trip boats will be operating throughout the festival weekend, one will take you to Blisworth Junction and back and the other to the entrance of the iconic Blisworth Tunnel. Cross the canal bridge to the large canal-side Festival Field which will be jam-packed with so many things to see and do. Vintage Caravans, Tractors, Children’s Fairground, Rifle Range, Companion Dog Show, Historical Re-enactors, Food Arena, Pimms & Real Cider bar, too many traders to mention and so much more!

Six other village venues close to the canal will also be full of things to see and do. We’ll have pony rides, a rare breed farmyard, sheep shearing demonstrations, a have-a-go bell tower, Art Gallery, traction engine and vintage vehicles, Open Gardens (Sunday only), antiques, birds of prey, parrots, rural craft demonstrations and a variety of food and drink outlets. 

There really is something for everybody!! 

Come and see for yourself why Blisworth Canal Festival is considered one of the best! Something for all ages and interests with no charge for parking, entry or mooring!! Not often that happens!
