The event, now in its 30th year, is organised and run totally by volunteers and attracts over  over 10,000 visitors a year. BCBF has helped raise over £100,000 for local and national charities.
There are 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 always something for everyone in the family.
