Easter weekend in Newquay will be big as it’s the start of the summer season, so every business will be open and putting on any offers or events they can!
Below is a quick overview, followed by the events diary to help you spot some great activities. The dates of Easter are Friday 14 April to Monday 17 April 2017, making it a great 4-day weekend and start of the summer season. Let’s hope somebody tells the sun!
Keep an eye out for local boards and adverts as a lot of events are just advertised locally on posters, being hard to track down.
