Falmouth Week (Mid-August)

Falmouth Week

Henri-Lloyd Falmouth Week has developed into the largest regatta in the South West, rivalled only by Cowes Week. It provides a racing schedule to challenge the most competitive sailors, yet retains a 'fun and friendly' feel which also attracts families and the less experienced.

Falmouth Week starts with the Falmouth Classics event, providing a special atmosphere and superb spectacle to kick off the week. Then follows six days of competitive racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies in the waters of Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the Harbour, with a Champagne Day on Wednesday. Activity on the water is matched by a lively Shoreside programme of daytime and evening entertainment, culminating in a magnificent firework display over the Harbour. With a Grand Prize Giving party in the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club at the end of the Week.

Falmouth Week (Mid-October)

Falmouth Week

Falmouth Oyster Festival has become acknowledged as a must travel to event by many visitors and holiday makers from all over the country. Timed to coincide with the start of the oyster harvesting season in October, the festival celebrates the quality of Cornish seafood and one of the last remaining oyster fisheries still dredging under sail and oar.

As well as the evening highlights, a programme of music will run throughout the four-day festival at Events Square in Falmouth. Genres range from Celtic harmonies and Cornish folk bands to jazz and shanty singing with Falmouth Shout, now a regular feature of Falmouth Oyster Festival, bringing the event to a suitable crescendo!
