The Bristol Harbour Festival is the city's ultimate day out for families. Not only is there child-friendly entertainment programmed for both days, but its all free!

We'll have circus acts, dance performances, arts and crafts and plenty of opportunities to get involved.



Bristol's seafaring history has always been at the heart of the Harbour Festival, celebrating the waterways which make the city so beautiful, and its shipbuilding past.

With the Floating Harbour a medley of tall ships and other visiting craft and many jaw-dropping displays on the water, the shoreline will be the place to be once again.



Whatever your musical tastes, you'll find something worth watching on the multiple music stages dotted around the city centre.

From riproaring sea shanties to funk, jazz, hip hop and indie rock, all the bases will be covered from the Thekla and Cascade Steps to Millennium Square and the ss Great Britain.

One of the great things about the Harbour Festival is not just disovering new music, but knowing many of the bands are from Bristol itself.



Circus skills. Street dance acts. Bollywood moves. Firebrand street poets. All these and more will feature throughout the weekend.

Catering for all ages, a packed programme of entertainment has been put together to ensure there's something fun around every corner.
