Fleetwood Festival of Transport (Tram Sunday)

17 July 2022

Fleetwood’s Festival of Transport returns on Sunday 17 July, for the first time in three years - alongside creative arts festival SpareParts.

The two free events will take place in Fleetwood town centre and along the seafront on Sunday July 17.

The transport festival, known locally as Tram Sunday, has been one of Fleetwood’s biggest spectacles for more than three decades and combined with SpareParts, launched by Fylde coast art company LeftCoast in 2014, it has become an even bigger attraction.

There will be a host of acts, vintage vehicles, parades and other events throughout the day.

The event, first held in 1986, is essentially a large transport festival, in which classic cars, buses, bikes and other vehicles of all eras are arranged in static displays along the length of main high street, Lord Street, and roads off it. There is also a parade of vehicles.

However, the event also includes a number of vintage trams, making it different from most other transport festivals and giving it the distinctive name.

In association with Fleetwood Festival of Transport

Tram Sunday 2022

The Parade

Look out for the huge parade, which this year will combine both the Tram Sunday classic vehicles procession with the whacky SpareParts parade.

It will set off from the Fishman’s Walk end of Lord Street at 11am, where it will travel the length of the street, then down North Albert Street, ending up at Euston Gardens.

There will also be a host of activities throughout the day.

This year will feature the legendary Cevic Trawler Tram, Fleetwood Fire Station’s Fire Engine well as the Royal Poppy Bikes, 10 All Star HGV Trucks and Roger Moore’s classic car from the TV Series The Saint, with many more vehicles yet to be announced.
