Loughs Agency are delighted that the Foyle Maritime Festival is set to take place from Saturday 29th July until Sunday 2nd 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 river 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, 5 day maritime extravaganza is one of the most eagerly anticipated events taking place in Northern Ireland in 2020.
