Over 10 days every year the eyes of Cornwall turn to Falmouth for its annual festivities. Originating as a sailing regatta as early at 1837, these days, with so much going on it’s hard to pin down a theme other than fun, fun and more fun. Sailing races now feature alongside, live music, food and drink events, extreme sports exhibitions, fireworks, and even the Red Arrows, there really is something for everyone going on!
2022’s edition takes place between 5th – 14th August. Throughout the week there will be a host of activities around The Moor, Falmouth’s pedestrianised square. These will include a large interactive gaming screen, a 40 foot Victorian carousel, and a bustling market which will be perfect for browsing and no doubt for grazing as well!
Highlights for music fans will be appearances by 90s rockers Reef will be playing on the Waterfront on Monday 8th August followed by Bad Manners on Thursday 11th August. Those that missed seeing Queen or Fleetwood Mac perform back in the day will be pleased at the opportunity to see a couple of great tribute acts combine on Friday 8th for a trip down memory lane.
Attendees will also be treated to a Carnival through the town centre on Saturday 6th which will be led by the fantastic Falmouth Marine Band. There’s an RNLI funday on Wednesday 10th and a Comic and Movie Fest on Saturday 13th.
