Newquay's Exhilarating Events!

Take a look at Newquay’s packed events programme!

Throughout the year Newquay plays host to some of Cornwall’s biggest events – from music festivals to surf championships there will be an event happening nearby to suit everyone.

King of the groms Fistral 2011Starting with Newquay Festivals in September down at the Newquay Harbour is a three day event called the Fish Festival – where famous chefs from all around Cornwall come and do cookery demonstrations (which yes, you do get to try the yummy results) and with stalls and entertainment throughout the day the Fish Festival is a great day out for all the family to enjoy.

Being the surf capital of the UK, Newquay has surf contests galore - from night surfs, the English National Championships to the world famous Boardmasters there will be something happening on one of the beaches for you to sit back and watch the pro’s at their best! 

Talking of sitting back and watching the pros, something you do not want to miss would be the Thundercat Power Boat Racing and the IFWA World Jet Ski Tour!  

Watergate Bay brings you the sound of Boardmasters which this year will have headlining acts Rudimental, Faithless and Bastille – to buy your Boardmasters tickets online please click here.

With these events and more taking place there will be fun for the whole family!
