National Trailboat Festivals

IWA's Trailboat Festivals are usually organised by groups with a strong interest in restoring and developing a local waterway or a feature on it, or promoting an under-used waterway.  Such organisations are invited by IWA to bid to organise one of these festivals as a means of increasing public support for their project and interest in the waterway.
