The Bristol Harbour Festival attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to explore the two mile stretch of the harbour featuring seven areas including dance, music, children’s activities, a busy on-water programme and phenomenal circus performances.

Organisers have promised a packed three day event, across a two mile stretch of the city from Brunel’s ss Great Britain to M Shed, and from Queen Square to the city’s leafy Castle Park. Visitors will be entertained by a vibrant mix of live performance, artists, musicians, dancers, circus acts, markets and street stalls. On the water, hundreds of sailing vessels, from historic ships and boats to pleasure yachts and harbour ferries will provide a colourful backdrop to Bristol’s annual celebration of its maritime heritage.

Festival goers can expect all their festival favourites from the festival market in Queen Square to the dedicated children’s area in Castle Park and from the dance stage in Millennium Square to the maritime activities in Bristol’s historic harbour. And there will be plenty of live music, street artists and circus acts too.

Entry to the festival is free and many of the festival events and activities are also free. Some shows and performance will incur a charge.
