Meet Us in Dudley at the Black Country Boating Festival

West Midlands

The Black Country Boating Festival is a boat gathering and community festival held during September each year in the Bumble Hole Nature Reserve, Windmill End, Netherton DY2 9HB

The event, which is now in its 31st year, is organised and run totally by volunteers. Attracting over 10,000 visitors a year, the event has helped raise over £100,000 for local and national charities.

With more than 200 boat, trade and charity stalls to browse, canal side entertainment, boaters’ competitions, a funfair, real ale bar and regular boat trips along the Dudley No 2 canal, there is always something for everyone in the family.

The festival is open to the public from 10am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday; admission to the site is free and there is ample onsite car parking available.

If you are interested in finding out about becoming a Foster Carer but are not able to make this free event then you can call out Carer Recruitment Officer on 0800 044 30 30 or alternatively request a call-back through our website.
