On 12, 13 and 14 September it will be party time on and around the Groningen canals. For the second time, the Canal Festival (Grachtenfestijn) will take place, a sustainable festival featuring music, boats, eating, drinking and culture.
The festival weekend has a full and varied programme, including a Sailing Trip, a Sustainability Market and a Canal Parade. There is also a guided canal walk and the Groningen Shipping Museum will play host to a wide range of activities targeting the younger participants.
Sustainability is an important theme of the festival. The organisation aims to make the Canal Festival the most sustainable Dutch festival.
