About the River Festival Liverpool
The River Festival is a much loved part of the Liverpool cultural events calendar, and each year, visitors’ flock to the World Heritage Waterfront to be part of this special, family friendly weekend.
Inspired by the city’s maritime history as an iconic Port and by historic and contemporary trading routes- such as the Columbia Express, The Silk Road and Incense Routes, the River Festival will celebrate the Port of Liverpool as an arrival and departure base for world class culture, music, food, wine and art.
River Festival Liverpool and Changing Tides has been curated by Liverpool City Council and funded by Arts Council England.
The theme for 2020 will shortly be released.
