Falmouth Week 2016
Falmouth Week 2015 is now over, but we're already looking forward to next year! 2016 dates are: Friday 5th- Sunday 14th August.
Here's what we got up to in 2015:
Off Shore Racing
Falmouth Week includes six days of match racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies in the waters off Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the harbour. Wednesday is Champagne Day, a race for the big yachts with a 25 mile coastal course finishing in the inner harbour, whilst smaller boats race in the Carrick Roads.
Kick off Falmouth Week the right way on Saturday by joining in with the Carnival, which starts at the Rugby Club and finishes with a free Carnival Party on Events Square. Falmouth Week’s renowned Red Arrows Display takes place on Wednesday, along with the daredevil Action Sports Tour, and we set off the biggest fireworks display of the year over the Harbour on Friday.
After a successful 2015 with Outlaw Food & Drink Festival and Outlaw Summer Market to The Moor, we look to bring it back in 2016. Outlaw ran their brand new Food & Drink Festival Saturday to Monday, which was followed by a 6 day artisan craft market from Tuesday to the following Sunday. The Food Festival featured top producers from across the South West, along with the best street food traders around, whilst the Summer Market showcased the talented artisan craft makers Outlaw is famous for.
Events Square at Falmouth Week has an amazing schedule of daytime and evening entertainment. It all kicks off on Friday with the Pink Wig Night, and continues with world class music and activities. In 2015 our evening entertainment featured the likes of The Wurzles, Dr & The Medics, Toploader and 90’s sensation Five. Themed nights included Hog Road & Cider, 80’s 90’s Extravaganza, and Jump & Jive. in 2015 we saw the biggest Science in the Square yet, and the University of Exeter are set to return in 2016.
Quays & Piers
We celebrated the sea on Custom House Quay with the RNLI, who ran a schedule of entertainment from live action water polo to tours on the Falmouth Lifeboat. On Prince of Wales Pier you could step into the seat of a Red Arrows pilot in the Red Arrows simulator.
