Merseyside International Festivals

Merseyside Street Festival The Merseyside International Street Festival is a celebration of global entertainment that defines Liverpool as a place of diversity and imagination.

For three weeks in July the city’s streets, theatres, parks and public spaces are awash with dancers, acrobats, musicians, children’s performers, artists and stilt-walkers from Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East, the Far East and South America.

And, as if to prove Liverpool’s rightful honour as the European Capital of Culture 2008, the celebrations are guaranteed to keep on getting bigger and better.

The annual carnival arts programme reaches many communities and groups in Merseyside in order to bring revellers the UK’s largest carnival costume section with over 1000 participants.

Performances take place all over the Liverpool and the surrounding areas, but the main festival venues are the Bluecoat Arts Centre, Lime Street Station, Queens Square, Williamson Square, Albert Dock, Concert Square and St George's Plateau.

This festival also creates platforms for international performance projects, local community tours and cultural collaborations that bring people together in a celebration of Liverpool’s unique multicultural, multi-faith landscape.
