Family Festivals!

Festivals that are lots of fun for the whole family!


Leeds Waterfront Festival is an annual, family friendly event taking place at Leeds Dock during the last weekend of June. The Festival sees a fantastic range of events come to life along the waterfront, including a Dragonboat race spectacular. Last year, activities included archery, live music and an abundance of arts and crafts activities for the whole family to enjoy.


Kirkstall Festival, in the picturesque grounds of the 12th Century Kirkstall Abbey, is a day out the whole family will love. The scenic area becomes a hive of activity, with live music performances, games and even a funfair. Explore over 160 stalls and tuck into plenty of tasty treats at this community festival!
