Falmouth Week 2016
Falmouth Week 215 is now over, but we're already looking forward to next year! 2016 dates are: Friday 5th- Sunday 14th August.
Here's what we got up to in 2015:
Off Shore Racing
Falmouth Week includes six days of match racing for keelboats, traditional craft and dinghies in the waters off Falmouth Bay, the Carrick Roads and the harbour. Wednesday is Champagne Day, a race for the big yachts with a 25 mile coastal course finishing in the inner harbour, whilst smaller boats race in the Carrick Roads.
Kick off Falmouth Week the right way by joining in with the Carnival, which starts at the Rugby Club and finishes with a free Carnival Party on Events Square. Falmouth Week’s renowned Red Arrows Display will take place on Wednesday 12th, along with the daredevil Action Sports Tour, and we’re setting off the biggest fireworks display yet over the Harbour on Friday 14th.
This year we’re introducing Outlaw Food & Drink Festival and Outlaw Summer Market to The Moor. Outlaw are launching their brand new Food & Drink Festival on Saturday 8th until Monday 10th August, which will be followed by a 6 day artisan craft market from Tuesday 11th to Sunday 16th August. The Food Festival will feature top producers from across the South West, along with the best street food traders around, whilst the Summer Market will showcase the talented artisan craft makers Outlaw is famous for.
Events Square at Falmouth Week is back with an amazing schedule of daytime and evening entertainment. It all kicks off on Friday 7th August with the Pink Wig Night, and continues with world class music from the likes of The Wurzles, Dr & The Medics, Toploader and 90’s sensation Five. Themed nights include Hog Road & Cider, 80’s 90’s Extravaganza, Poldark & Pirates, and Jump & Jive.
Quays & Piers
We’re celebrating the sea on Custom House Quay with the RNLI, who are running a schedule of entertainment from live action water polo to tours on the Falmouth Lifeboat. On Prince of Wales Pier you can step into the seat of a Red Arrows pilot in the Red Arrows simulator.
