Newquay Events in April 2017

April brings the start of the season as businesses open for the first time this year and everybody’s focussed on giving great experiences to locals and visitors.
Newquay Events, April 2017The official start date of the tourist season is Easter, which is in mid April 2017 – so the weather has a chance of being quite warm. Local businesses will be dusting off their wares, rolling up their sleeves – and starting to gauge what the public will want from them this year, so they can then look at finalising their planned events for the year ahead in more detail.

Taking a look at what’s ahead, here are some local events occurring in Newquay in April 2017 of interest to residents of Newquay and visitors alike:
