Free Events in Newquay 2013

Whether it’s surfing, pub quizzes, carnivals or markets, below is a list of some free events in Newquay for you enjoy in 2013.

While most of these events are totally free, some might have an expense involved. e.g. a free pub quiz would imply you’d have to buy a drink or two, or a free event at some venues is only free after you’ve paid their usual entrance fees (e.g. The National Trust and the Eden Project often have this criteria).

However, we’ve tried to keep the list to “free with no catches” 99% of the time, only including a few events where there is some cost involved where the event was considered of special interest or note.

    Newquay New Years Eve Fireworks 2017, Newquay

    Every year at midnight there’s a fireworks display at the end of Newquay Harbour to welcome in the new year.

    Newquay New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display 2017/2018. Newquay Fireworks 2017

    This free firework display starts in the minutes just after midnight.

    Wherever you are in town, as the bells are ringing in the New Year, make a dash next to the Harbour to watch them!

    Get as close as you can, for the best effect, but you can also watch the fireworks from further afield:

    Visible from Watergate Bay, Porth, Tolcarne, Great Western and Towan Beach.
    Visible from Barrowfields and Killacourt.
    From any vantage point, if you can see the sea entrance to Newquay Harbour you’ll be able to see the fireworks.
