Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival

With the support of our sponsors, we hope that Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival will return on Friday 31st May until Sunday 2nd June 2019.

The Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival is a community event run entirely by volunteers, we are nationally recognised and attract thousands of visitors to the Island.

Back in 2017 Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival was a great success, celebrating our 20th year and our chosen charity was the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

As ever we welcomed visitors and islanders alike to come and watch the magnificent Gaff Rigged boats racing in the Solent and brilliantly dressed in the Harbour.

There was plenty of free entertainment onshore with music and street theatre, as well as a variety of international and local stalls selling crafts and wares, a funfair for the children and a fantastic Classic Car display.

In the evening there were some spectacular bands for dancing in our Famous Marquee and Bar on the Quay.

Once we have confirmation of sponsorship for the 2019 festival, the Useful Info. page will show you where to buy Tickets and Programmes.
In the meantime, please use the Contact Form to get in touch or ask questions.

Without the support of several organisations and businesses, it would not be possible to put on such a unique and fabulous event.
