What's on at Falmouth Week

The vibrant seaside town of Falmouth hosts a famous festival each year in August called 'Falmouth Week'.

It's an exciting week packed with live performances, regatta events and parades. There's something for all ages and interests during the famous Falmouth Week. 

Events will take place all over Falmouth during this week but the central hub for activities is The Moor and live music events is mostly at the Waterfront. Falmouth week is sponsored by many local and national vendors and the town council to allow for many of the festivities to take place free of charge.
