Fowey Royal Regatta sailing and crab catching
We’re one of the country’s best-loved Regattas, attracting thousands of visitors, many making an annual pilgrimage.

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!

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.


Strange Almond band

Strange Almond

Friday’s fantastic double-bill includes St Stephen synth-pop covers duo, Strange Almond, supporting the Lover Boys.
