The second ever Isle of Wight Day will be held on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017.
Isle of Wight Day is the Island’s very own “Red Nose Day”, when the whole community is encouraged to cover the Island in celebratory bunting and to enjoy the hundreds of events being held all over the Island, in aid of local causes.
It’s a day of reunions, for family and friends to spend the weekend on the Island and to party with the whole community, like you’ve never partied before! Come and wave a flag with us all on September 23rd.
Isle of Wight Day 2017 will be even bigger and better, with many more events and activities held on the day.
As well as even more bunting being distributed Island-wide, thanks to the ferry companies, there will also be a Songs of Praise concert, as well as inter-schools competitions taking place across the Isle of Wight.
There will also be an event celebrating the wonderful talent on the Isle of Wight, with ‘Island’s Got Talent’, supported by Rob da Bank. A series of regional heats to find the best local talent – with a grand final on September 23rd, where the best Island entertainers will compete.
Following the success of last year’s Yachting Relay, this year will see a Flotilla of boats of all shapes and sizes, decked out in Isle of Wight Day bunting, making their way through the Solent – which is sure to be a magnificent sight.
And this year’s People’s Parade will be held in Ryde, where hundreds of people can join together to celebrate the Isle of Wight, creating the biggest and most colourful Parade ever seen on the Island.
