Skipton Waterway Festival 2019

Three days of boating fun in Skipton

Skipton’s annual Waterway Festival is due to take place this weekend and this year’s event promised three action-packed days of free fun for all the family.

Skipton Waterway Festival attracts 10,000 visitors a year and the family friendly festival hosts a wide range of entertainment including children’s activities, vintage engines, stalls, crafts, plenty of food and drink plus, of course, lots of gorgeous boats. There will be live entertainment each day from 10.30am, and with so much on offer, what better way could there be to spend a day by the canal in Skipton?
