Leeds Waterfront Festival

Leeds Waterfront Festival - Dragon Boat Race 2016 - Raj Passy


The annual Leeds Waterfront Festival returns for its 12th year on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June! Bringing 4 miles of the city’s waterways to life, the festival will be brimming with activities and creativity on the water, boats and on dry land alongside an amazing weekend of family-friendly fun activities, music, performance and art!

GRANARY WHARF (Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June)
Canal & River Trust will be back at Granary Wharf, which will be transformed into a hive of free activities.
Challenge yourself to the climbing wall or have a go at canoeing or paddle boarding before laying back in a deck chair to enjoy the live bands.
On the Sunday the bands will be replaced with a DJ playing some chilled-out tunes to get you in the mood for some yoga, meditation or to simply relax while watching our live artists.
Just over the lock, at the water taxi stop, support Head High, St George’s Crypt, and Martin House for a family BBQ, freshly brewed coffee, Pimms & Gin tent, charity stalls and live music.

BREWERY WHARF (Saturday 29th June)
Brewery Wharf Festival returns for 2019 on Saturday 29th June from 12-10pm. As well as the usual family-friendly mix of BBQ’s, street food, outdoor bars, DJ’s and karaoke competition the acclaimed party band The Rebel Sounds are back by popular demand with a blistering afternoon set of live club classics. Entrance to the event is completely free and your first drink from the festival bar is on Pink Gorilla if you go to and download the offer.

THE TETLEY (Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June)
The Tetley weekender is a free, annual micro-festival that takes its inspiration from our current exhibition with activities for all the family. This year our theme will be sculpture, so come take part in many fun family collaborations inside and out, alongside incredible food and drink from our Bar & Kitchen. Expect lots of creative crafts, messy making to face painting. It's a great introduction to everything we do at The Tetley.

LEEDS DOCK (Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June)
The Waterfront Festival at Leeds Dock is one of the highlights of the summer, and this year is set to be bigger and better than ever before with food, family activities and competitions across the whole weekend.
The weekend includes the fun-filled Dragon Boat races on Saturday 29th June, the family-friendly dog agility show on Sunday 30th, and, new for this year at Leeds Dock, the aquathlon.
This year also sees the return of the British Street Food Awards Northern Heats with 12 of the region’s best street food traders battling it out for the judges’ and people’s choice votes.
Whether you’re entering one of the contests, supporting friends and family or just want to come down and enjoy the great dockside atmosphere, this is a great event that you don‘t want to miss.
