Ipswich Maritime Festival

Ipswich Maritime Festival

Following the success of the Ipswich Maritime Festival 2015 the next Festival will take place the weekend of 19th and 20th August 2017.

Get ready for a full weekend of activities as we celebrate our maritime history.

The Ipswich Maritime Festival is now an event that is part of the annual calendar, and it is the town’s way of celebrating its maritime history and how this has shaped the development of the town over the centuries.

During the Ipswich Maritime Festival we can be assured of a wide range of activities for families, couples and individuals alike. We’re already expecting the return of the famous maritime market, attractions for the children, visits out on the Sailing Barge Victor, music, food, drink …. and much more.

Ipswich is such a great place to visit, and this event is just one reason why so many people visit our town. Once the full programme of activities is announced we will update this page, and the programme of events will be added to our Events Page where you can find these events and many others which you can schedule into your diary.

If you would like to be involved in the event, as an exhibitor, market stall holder, volunteer or vendor then email
