Festivals & Events

As visitors to the Rochdale Canal you are spoilt for choice when it comes to festivals and events. The Canal takes a route from Sowerby Bridge to the City of Manchester through Calderdale’s market towns and the boroughs of Oldham and Rochdale which means there is something to attend all year round somewhere on the canal.

From rush bearing in Littleborough and Sowerby Bridge, dance and science in Manchester, cycling and literature in Oldham, arts and music in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden or canal wide community based events – there is festival for every interest.

Look out for news of the upcoming events and the annual Rochdale Canal Festival in the Calendar of events and News and Views.
