Set your compass for East Dunbartonshire – the dates have been confirmed for the 2024 Kirkintilloch Canal Festival!

This year, the main weekend of activities will take place on Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September – with a range of boat trips during the week leading up.

East Dunbartonshire Council is once again organising the festival – which is being fully externally funded – in conjunction with a flotilla of public and private sector partners.

The annual celebration of all things nautical and nice regularly attracts thousands of people of all ages, provides a treasure chest of family fun and boosts the local economy.

Details are still being finalised, but already there are plans for live music, fireworks, food and drink, activities and boat trips. Keep your eyes on the horizon for updates.

This year the festival is being supported by resources allocated by the Council from the UK Government's Shared Prosperity Fund.

Councillor Gordan Low, Leader of the Council, said: “The Kirkintilloch Canal Festival is popular with people throughout East Dunbartonshire and beyond, so I'm pleased we have been able to confirm that external funding has been secured for this year's celebration.

"Once again the focus will be on providing as many free activities as possible – including canoeing, classic cars, the Saturday evening concert with live music and fireworks, and more.

"The festival will take place at Southbank Marina and various locations around the town – including the redeveloped Regent Gardens – giving residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the area and attractions, while supporting local businesses.”


The festival includes partners such as East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, Kirkintilloch Baptist Church, the Regent Centre, Police Scotland, New College Lanarkshire – Kirkintilloch Campus, the Forth and Clyde Canal Society, the Seagull Trust, Scottish Canals, Your Kirky and Kirkintilloch Business Improvement District.
