Belfast Maritime Weekender

September 4, 2021 - September 5, 2021

Come on in for a weekend of ‘mini moments’ along the Maritime Mile in Belfast on 4 and 5 September and find out more about the Belfast HUB-IN project. This ambitious project aims to create a dynamic maritime destination where preservation of heritage complements regeneration. Our staff will be based at the Lord Pirrie Office at the Titanic Hotel but you will also find us at a range of activities and events that weekend.

The Maritime Weekender has been designed with space and safety in mind, pockets of exciting nautical activities will stretch across the entire Maritime Mile, with something for everyone to enjoy.

There are no tall ships but Belfast’s City Council will welcome a host of visiting vessels and boats to the quayside. Climb aboard and learn a little more about life at sea and maybe get a chance to meet some of the crew. Visit Irish Lights vessel ILV Granuaile or the 1960s old style tug boat ‘Brocklebank’ or catch a glimpse of some on-the-water displays and demo racing.

Other daytime and evening activities include:

  • live music and dance
  • nautical themed street performers and shows
  • playful art and heritage installations
  • dance picnics for children
  • walking and cycle tours
  • a treasure trail
  • a pop-up market on the Slipways, open until 8pm
  • lights and illumination (8pm until 11pm)

Most events are free so you can dip in and out at your leisure. But there are some tours and music events that aren’t free and need to be booked. For event information or to book events, go to Belfast Maritimer Weekender. Download the weekender map here.
