Etruria Boat Gathering will run on SATURDAY 10th and SUNDAY 11th July 2021

Open to the public 11am-5pm daily.

The event will be centred around an historic narrowboat gathering, alongside family friendly activities, and a selection of craft stalls and exhibitors.

For 2021 we have made the decision to run a smaller scale of event that enables us to make sure we offer a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone (while still celebrating the area’s fantastic canal heritage of course!)

The event is free to attend

If you’re a trader or charity who’d like to attend the event you can now download 2021 booking forms (under the contact us tab) 

The festival is run by Etruria Canals Festival Group and B arts 

Greening Etruria Canals Festival 

The festival committee are trying to cut down on the environmental impact of the event and have worked with Keele University and Stopford Energy to help us create a sustainability plan.  As part of this we’ll be adopting some schemes (like a deposit system for cups) to try and reduce waste created by the festival and also looking at initiatives to enable more people to travel to the event by bicycle or public transport details to be confirmed nearer the time.  If you have some ideas or would like to know more please do get in touch.
