The Regatta is one of the UK’s best known sailing events with a long history. There’s a full programme of races for Troys, Fowey Rivers, Cruisers, Falmouth Working Boats and a handicap dinghy fleet.
Traditional land-based events include the Carnival procession, fireworks displays, the crab-catching competition and Fowey harbour swim, the Giant Pasty ceremony and pasty-eating competition, flora dance and, of course, Fowey Town Band. Plus live music every night on Town Quay.
A week of memories to treasure forever!
Without your donations, Fowey Regatta would be half the event it is. Where possible, every event is free to spectate, from the live bands and fireworks to the Red Devils. Please consider donating to make Fowey Regatta the fantastic event it is for all!
Fowey Regatta 2023 is scheduled for 13th to 19th August.
Mark it in your diaries!
Fowey Regatta Favourites
Fowey Regatta 2021 Live Music
Not The Beatles
Cornwall’s premier Beatles tribute band are back by popular request, after a packed-out gig in 2019! Over two sets – early Beatles and post-Sergeant Pepper – and numerous costume changes, expect all the greatest hits of the Fab Four.
Change the Letter
Supporting Not the Beatles on Saturday evening are Change the Letter, an alternative/roots music duo from the heart of Cornwall. Blending American rock and country, their influences include Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Oasis and Paul Weller.
Tango In The Night
Following The Good Old Fashioned Lover Boys’ cancellation due to a positive Covid case we are delighted to announce that premier Fleetwood Mac tribute band Tango In The Night will headline in their place. Tango in the Night co-headlined Falmouth Week last weekend alongside another Queen tribute band and we are fortunate and grateful to them for dropping everything to save the night.
Friday’s fantastic double-bill includes St Stephen synth-pop covers duo, Strange Almond, supporting the Lover Boys.
Their set spans the decades, from Eighties favourites – Soft Cell! Blondie! Human League! – to the likes of Daft Punk.
Last Night of the Proms
St Dennis Band play a medley of favourites from the Last Night of The Proms. Highlights include Land of Hope & Glory, Rule Britannia and the Cornish anthem Trelawney.
