Foyle Maritime Festival 2020

Derry City and Strabane District Council is delighted to announce that The Foyle Maritime Festival is set to take place from Saturday 25th July until Sunday 02nd August 2020

The event will feature the Clipper 2019-20 Round the World Yacht Race as part of its international programme of events, making it the fifth consecutive Clipper Race that the city has hosted.

Come and see why the legacy of the Foyle Maritime Festival has earned it the reputation between crews past and present for being the penultimate stop over despite fierce competition from other host cities like Cape Town, Seattle  and New York among others. With a range of keynote events, live performances, visiting ships and boats as well as water activities, food trails and animated zones it’s no wonder that this award winning, nine day maritime extravaganza is one of the most eagerly anticipated events taking place in Northern Ireland in 2020.
