Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival Committee are excited to announce that the Festival will now be held as a bi-annual event and the next one will be on Friday June 2nd, to Sunday 4th June 2017.
Back for another fun filled weekend of entertainment and interesting things to see and do for the whole family. The harbour will be filled with the colourful spectacle of the visiting gaff rigged vessels, some of which will race in The Solent on Saturday. There is also a Sunday morning race from the Royal Solent Yacht Club with the Queen’s Jubilee Race.
Other popular attractions at Yarmouth Old Gaffers include street entertainment, live music, classic vehicle displays, lifeboat demonstrations and much more. There is also a craft fair and continental market setup around Yarmouth town, and St James’ Church will host the colourful Flower Festival, whilst the “McGaffers’ beer tent” holds one of the Isle of Wight’s largest real ale festivals across the weekend.
