get involved:

Sign up soon if you’d like to take part in the raft race – It’s rapidly becoming known as one of the most entertaining events in Edinburgh’s calendar and there are limited boat spaces!

If you’d like to get involved in the broader festival, we have stalls available, a stage for musicians / dancers / drummers, and would love some more volunteers.

The Edinburgh Canal Festival is a not-for-profit community event co-ordinated by Re-Union Canal Boats, who work with a wide range of community groups and local businesses. The festival is sponsored this year by City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Canals.
