What’s on in Newquay in July 2016?

Let’s hope the weather in July turns out better than June experiences! It’s now peak season and I’m sure the sun will put in an appearance – maybe even that heatwave they promised us a month ago… Newquay Events, July 2016

So, what’s on in Newquay in July 2016? The two main events in Newquay are the week long Newquay Carnival, which sees many businesses putting on small/tailored events during that week – so eyes on the shop windows for those and the Newquay Electric Beach Festival (a mostly ticketed event). So there’s lots going on for all age groups.

Below are some of the regular events and highlights for your enjoyment!  Whether you’re a local, or a visitor, there’s something that’ll catch your eye! This is never a full list of everything that’s going on, so read the local papers and check out those noticeboards around town for more things to do:
