Saturday 19th - Sunday 20th May 2018

Raising awareness of, and money for, the restoration, extension and maintenance of the Ashby Canal


It really wouldn't be a canal festival without boats on the water...  The Moira Canal Festival is held on the isolated section of the Ashby Canal between Donisthorpe and Moira.  This means that the festival is accessible to trailable boats of ALL descriptions.  The more the merrier!

You will have ample time to cruise the length of the isolated section or just soak up the festival atmosphere.  The choice is yours!  There is free parking available for trailers, access to waste disposal and water, and slipway access available at Conkers Waterside.
