Skipton Waterway Festival has been an annual event in Skipton for 17 years, with footfall this year (2018) increasing by more than 10,000 per day during the 3-day festival.
The Waterway Festival happens on May Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday through Monday. Originally organised by British Waterways and Pennine Cruisers, Skipton BID stepped in after British Waterways were no longer able to provide the main funding for this event, enabling Pennine Cruisers to continue with a very popular and cherished waterways event, that raises awareness of Skipton as a whole, the canal basin and the canal system.
