Fowey, PL23 1JD

18 Aug 2019 - 24 Aug 2019

One of the country’s best-loved Regattas, attracting thousands of visitors, many making an annual pilgrimage.

Traditional favourites include the Carnival procession, fireworks displays, the crab-catching competition and Fowey harbour swim, the Giant Pasty ceremony and pasty-eating competition, flora dance and, of course, Fowey Town Band. Plus live music every night on Town Quay.

The Regatta is also one of the UK’s best known sailing events. There’s a full programme of races, including the famous Troys, a class of sailing boat built only in Fowey.

A week of memories to treasure forever!

Not The Beatles

Cornwall’s premier Beatles tribute band played a triumphant gig at Fowey Regatta last year, and they’re back by popular request.
Over two sets – early Beatles and post-Sergeant Pepper – and numerous costume changes, expect all the hits of the Fab Four. And plenty of singing along!
Saturday night, Fowey Town Quay

The Irregulars

London’s Irregulars have played all over the capital and had the crowd congoing around Town Hall at the last Fowey Cider Festival – so make sure you’ve got your dancing shoes on!
All your ska and 2-Tone favourites – and they might even reprise their ska take on The Wurzels’ I Am a Cider Drinker…
Friday night, Fowey Town Quay


Black Friday

Come Tuesday night, the Quay will vibrate to the Celtic-folk-punk of Cornwall’s very own seven-piece Black Friday band.
Via the South-West, Ireland and the Glastonbury Festival, we’ve finally brought them to Fowey. And a cracking night ensued, that was talked about for weeks afterwards…
