What's On

The English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, has events and attractions occurring throughout the year, making it a superb, value for money destination even during the off-peak months. New and exciting events crop up every year, but there are plenty of annual favourites that will keep you coming back!
 
If you want to know what’s on in Torquay, the answer is - a lot! Torquay is the heart of the English Riviera and plays host to a huge range of festivals for everyone all year round. There are various regattas throughout the calendar and many maritime events to watch. In addition to boats of all shapes and sizes, each event brings with it its own celebrations, so you’ll find live music, markets, fireworks and even Red Arrow displays transforming Torquay into a virtual Mardi Gras, attracting locals and visitors alike.

Pirates and Phantoms

Brixham holds an annual event unlike any other. For two days in May, you can splice your mainbrace at the annual Brixham Pirate Festival. With events such as the ‘Mile o’ Pirates’ record attempt, re-enactments on the Golden Hind and fancy dress competitions, this really is perfect for families.

Things don’t calm down in the autumn and winter. Many attractions opens their doors after dark on Hallowe’en, such as Paignton Zoo with its Ghoulish Ghost Trail. Stout-hearted visitors will be able to spot bats and listen to the music made by the creatures of the night. For a more festive adventure, visit the Model Village’s Winter Wonderland in Babbacombe and the Torquay Christmas Sparkle.
