29th April – 1st May 2017
Come along to London's biggest waterside festival taking place over the early May Bank Holiday weekend.
View the spectacle of the decorated boats in the pool, or watch a Punch & Judy show in Rembrandt Gardens. As well as boating competitions and parades, there will be lots of activities to keep the children amused. Visit the tasty selection of food stalls, see what's on offer at the real-ale bar, or peruse the stalls selling the weird and the wonderful. There really is something for everyone at this special event.
IWA Canalway Cavalcade is a unique waterway boat gathering organised by IWA volunteers, that has been taking place at Little Venice since 1983.
