Riverside is one of Leicester’s biggest free festivals featuring activities on and off the water. Highlights on the river include colourful boats from across the region, canoe demonstrations and boat trips. This year sees the welcome return of the ever popular and exciting charity dragon boat racing on Sunday, and it is free to try on Saturday.

On land, the festival continues to build on its reputation for great live music by showcasing some of the best bands and artists on the main stage. There’s plenty to entertain the whole family, including children’s activities, art and craft market, street entertainers and children’s funfair plus a variety of tempting food stalls.
