Throughout the year there are numerous events, from Rowing Club nights, through to the huge, annual Newquay Fish Festival and the County Gig Championships and the annual Newquay Harbour Water Sports Day. The RNLI have Lifeboat Days and various fundraising events use the harbour for water-sports based challenges and sponsored events.
Most events will take place between April and September as the sea in winter can be too changeable for planned activities. On New Year’s Eve there is a fireworks display at the harbour.
Below is a list of events at Newquay Harbour, this is not an exhaustive list, but is an overview of the more major and regular events:
