Belfast Maritime Festival

Titanic Quarter, Belfast, County Antrim, BT2 8DJ
Crowds gather along Queens Quay in Belfast to enjoy Belfast Maritime Festival.


Titanic Quarter will come alive on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September with an array of free entertainment for all to enjoy.

Belfast Maritime Festival will once again welcome a flotilla of vessels and ships to Queen's Quay and Abercorn Basin, where you can hop on board to experience life at sea and meet the crew.

Along the Maritime Mile, there will be a host of local musical talent so kick up your feet and dance to live music, laugh along with our captivating quayside street performers or simply enjoy a relaxing picnic. For the little ones, check out Wee Critters, Mini Explorers and more family fun in Kidszone at Queens Quay.

Head for Titanic Slipways where a host of fun interactive activities, demonstrations and live shows await curious minds of all ages at the Science Street. The packed programme will explore topics such as navigation at sea, marine biology, ship design, climate change and biodiversity.

While you're at the Slipways, check out the best of local producers and makers at the Belfast Bazaar, enjoy live music performances on stage, and take in the iconic setting and ambience that the festival has to offer.

This event is brought to you by Belfast City Council, proudly supported by Tourism NI, and is delivered in partnership with Maritime Belfast Trust, Belfast Harbour, Odyssey Trust, Department for Communities and Titanic Quarter Ltd.
