Vintage planes, historic fishing trawlers, delicious seafood, live music and spectacular fireworks combine in a 1940’s themed weekend that celebrates the best of Brixham.
Enjoy some familiar events from the past, including the Heritage Sailing Trawler Rally and the Sunday evening blessing of the fishing fleet and Saturday night Fireworks. On Monday it’s children’s day with tons of interesting stuff for the little (and not so little) ones.
BrixFest is a true community event, organised and run by local volunteers for the benefit of every one in the town and for visitors too. All age groups can get involved in the fun, there really is something for everyone!
King George V Cup Centenary Regatta
In 2014, the Regatta will see a special anniversary as it will be 100 years since King George V presented the Perpetual Challenge Cup in 1914. We are therefore hoping to attract a record number of boats and hopefully some VIP’s to the 2014 Brixham Heritage Regatta

Enjoy sustainable sea foods fresh from Brixham Market, locally produced beers and ciders and cooking demonstrations from local chefs.
Great local bands play during Saturday evening.
