Each of our events and attractions have their own unique identity, and each one reflects Island life. Add to the mix mild and sunny weather and great beaches and you can see why there are always plenty of reasons to visit.
In late February, visit the Island to enjoy the live and local music which fills the pubs and venues for Acoustic Isle. Walk through the town and hear the dulcet tones of an acoustic guitar spilling out on to the street. Make your way inside to warm up by a cosy log fire with a pint of tasty local beer. Acoustic Isle sees the Isle of Wight host 100 gigs over 10 days and celebrates the Isle of Wight's thriving local music scene.
As the cold subsides, the Island truly springs to life in April and May with a whole range of Easter themed events, followed by the 2 week Isle of Wight Walking Festival (the largest in the UK) and the Gaffers Festival, a colourful sailing regatta held in the picturesque harbour town of Yarmouth. Summertime also marks the beginning of the music festival season, with the world-famous Isle of Wight Festival starting the party!
