The Etruria Canals Festival has been a popular community event for many years. Visitors come from a wide area to enjoy a range of activities and to look at the boats. It is enjoyed by all boaters and has long had the support of the working boat community in particular.

Historically it was organised by a team lead by the Industrial Museum with funding from the City Council. In 2012 the Inland Waterways Association North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Branch and the Etruria Boat Group took over the event, as The Etruria Canals Festival.  Since 2016 Stoke-based arts organisation B arts are supporting the volunteer steering group to co-ordinate the event.
