Princes Dock Street Party

A special free to attend three-day street party will take place at Princes Dock to celebrate the start of the cruise season this weekend.

Princes Dock Street Food Party will start on Thursday 29 May (5.30pm-9.30pm) welcoming the Ruby Princess to the City. The wonderful event and its street food will be themed around the USA and culminate with a fireworks display.

Working with Liverpool City Council, Peel Holdings and SK Events, organisers of Liverpool Food and Drink Festival, The Princes Dock Street Food Party will offer visitors a unique experience on the waterfront in conjunction with some of the city’s favourite restaurants. The event will include high-quality musical entertainment set against the amazing backdrop of the huge Ruby Princess and Queen Victoria cruise liners.

On Friday 30 May, Liverpool will welcome the third in Cunard’s “grand trio” of express liners, the Queen Victoria, to the city as part of Cunard’s RMS Aquitania’s 100th anniversary of its maiden voyage to New York on 30 May 1914. The liner will be berthed for two days and Cunard will hold a firework display over the River Mersey at around 10:45pm. The liner departs on Saturday 31 May and will be serenaded by opera singer Danielle Thomas at 4pm.

The event is free to attend, visitors do not need to register, simply turn up and enjoy!
