Brixfest 2018- Multi Award Winning Event
BrixFest 2018 returns from 26th – 30th May this year, and we’re so excited to show you everything the committee have been working on the past twelve months.
As usual, our official opening at 11am on Saturday 26th May features an appearance by a local VIP and music from Brixham Town Band. The opening will be followed by cooking demonstrations sponsored by England’s Seafood Coast featuring local chefs and ingredients. The chefs will be preparing local fish dishes and audience members will have a chance to taste the final product. Live Music by local musicians continues into the afternoon and evening – and the day culminates in our annual Grand Firework Display at 9:50pm.
Sunday 27th May sees the return of the annual BrixFest Dragonboat Challenge. Teams made up of local people battle it out along the Breakwater for victory – a chance to be crowned Brixham’s Dragonboat Champions! Look out for Buoys ‘n Belles – a team which have won the last two challenges in a row and hold the course-record…Also find the Arts & Craft Market run by Brixham Chamber of Commerce, all day underneath The Old Fish Market.
On Monday 28th the eagerly anticipated Children’s Day will bring together organisations from all over Torbay and Devon on Breakwater Beach, offering local and visiting children and families the chance to engage in free activities throughout the day. Face painting, drama workshops, interactive trails, local acoustic live music, balloon-animal making, build-a-boat and loads more on offer – all for free! A charity-stall mini-market takes place underneath The Old Fish Market on this day too.
Tuesday and Wednesday feature our Crabbing Competition and Vintage Car Rally respectively.
BrixFest 2018 will bring hundreds of artists, charities, chefs and local people together with thousands of visitors. Throughout the festival we encourage you to keep it local and spend your hard earned money in the local shops and restaurants.
