Fowey Royal Regatta
For one week each August our usually tranquil little town attracts thousands of visitors who flock here for the Fowey Royal Regatta. The Regatta is one of Britain’s premier sailing events, it is also a fun- filled week for all the family, sailors and landlubbers alike.

One of the highlights is always an amazing display over the harbour by the Red Arrows who have been making an annual appearance for over 30 years. Other main events include the Carnival with a amazing parade of people and floats in fancy dress finery, glorious firework displays over the river, live music on the Town Quay and of course racing on the water every day – not only the serious stuff, but raft and gig racing as well as swimming for the brave!
