19th – 21st July Waterways Festival

The Waterways Festival is an annual national event held by the Inland Waterways Association (IWA). The 2013 Festival will be held this year along the Grand Union Canal in Cassiobury Park from 19th-21st July.

The event is organised and operated by volunteers from the IWA and is their largest event of the year. The organisation campaigns for the conservation, use, maintenance, restoration and development of the inland waterways of Britain.

It is a three day celebration of our inland waterways (mainly canals), with hundreds of visiting boats and exhibitors, live music and entertainment for all the family, especially the children. A wide variety of food outlets will cater for every taste whilst the real ale bar is always popular. There will be a large campsite and plenty of mooring space for visitors to bring a craft, camp or just visit and join in the festivities.

It’s a great opportunity to showcase Watford and Cassiobury Park. As it is a large event the organisers and council recognise the need to minimise disruption for local residents and regular park users and are very experienced in doing this.
