BrixFest enters 2017 in its sixth year having firmly established itself as one of Brixham’s leading festivals. We pride ourselves on getting bigger and better each year, and BrixFest 2017 is no different!


The sixth annual BrixFest Grand Fireworks Display is incoming! Get excited...

Now famous for being the best display in Brixham (alright, maybe we're a little bias), the display always wow's visitors and leaves us with a feeling of pride: how can one small town produce so many massive bangs? Best viewing is had from the inner harbour (it's loud!), but thanks to the natural shape of the harbour you can see the Fireworks from as far away as Torquay on a clear night!


The Dragonboat Challenge returns to BrixFest!

​Yes, that's right. You read it correctly. For another year, teams will battle it out on the Breakwater for the right to be called BrixFest Dragonboat Champions! Last year's winners, Buoys 'n' Belles are returning for 2017, but with two teams. They'll be tough to beat. Reckon you've got it in you?

Dragon-boating is a fantastic team building exercise for charities, businesses or other organisations. Even the Lifeboat Crew got involved last year! Teams must be made up of 11 people over the age of 16. Entry forms here.


Breakwater Beach once again plays host to one of BrixFest's most well-attended events, the Children's Day as sponsored by the fabulous Splashdown Quaywest.

Come and enjoy our petting zoo, facepainting, drama and theatre workshops and performances, street performers, arts and craft activities, build-a-boat, and so much more: all for FREE for both locals and visitors alike!

Please note that these events are extremely popular and take place on Breakwater Beach. The car parks can get very busy and we recommend bussing or walking it!


The Sharing Heritage Lottery Funded 'Brixham Heritage Trail' launched in April 2017 and aims to collect memories, stories and physical historic content and produce an engaging and interactive trail for town visitors to follow. 

The trail in physical booklet form will be accompanied by a mobile application produced by South Devon College students and a database website accessible to the public! 

​BrixFest 2017 plays host to a Live Action Day on Tuesday 30th May where visitors can follow the trail and experience re-enactments of historic events around the town by local groups, charities and organisations. We're bringing history to life!
