Festivals and Regatta
Fowey’s Festival of Arts and Literature, organised by the du Maurier Festival Society is a great chance to revel in readings, literature debates, musical performances and many more activities.
Arguably the biggest event in the town’s calendar is the Royal Regatta. The week-long event is loved by thousands of visitors, and adored by locals alike. Full of events for all ages. The town comes alive with parades, fireworks, live music, competitions and races, as well as the more traditional sailing activities.
There’s no slowing down as the festive period approaches. As a year-round destination, Fowey puts on a show in early December and hosts a weekend of food, drink, entertainment and the chance to stock up on Christmas gifts at their Christmas Market. The community have got behind this event since its first year in 2005 and now is a firm favourite in the town’s calendar.
Alongside all of this, there are plenty more things to get involved with and enjoy. You can find fun bingo nights, quiz nights and charity fundraisers throughout the year, as well as a massive choice of shops, bakeries, cafes, pubs and restaurants to indulge in.
