Friday 5th - Sunday 14th August 2016
Welcome to Falmouth Week 2016
Falmouth Week is a major attraction for locals and visitors alike. With its origins in a local sailing regatta dating back at least far as 1837 (we have an engraved trophy to prove it!) the Week has evolved into not only a major sailing competition in the SW but also an opportunity for sailors and landlubbers to enjoy the many daytime and evening attractions in the town.
Kick off Falmouth Week 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 will take place mid week, along with the daredevil Action Sports Tour, and we’re setting off our world class fireworks display over the Harbour on Friday.
The Moor plays host to Outlaw's spectacular Food & Drink Festival, followed by the Summer Market. See the space transformed with outside seating, street food, live music and the Falmouth Breeze Bar. Inside of the Outlaw marquee you'll find the top artisan food and craft makers in the South West.
Events Square at Falmouth Week is back with 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 fun daytime activities, including the University of Exeter's Science in the Square. in 2015 we welcomed 90's sensation Five along with Toploader, Dr & The Medics and The Wurzles, to name a few. Themed nights included Hog Road & Cider, 80’s 90’s Extravaganza, and Jump & Jive.
Quays & Piers
Celebrate the sea on Custom House Quay with the RNLI, who run a schedule of entertainment from live action water polo to tours on the Falmouth Lifeboat. Wednesday sees Squadron Leader Red 10 direct the world famous Red Arrows from the end of Custom House Quay. On Prince of Wales Pier you can step into the seat of a Red Arrows pilot in the Red Arrows simulator.
