Saturday: Food, Music, Fireworks!

This year's Saturday at BrixFest is slightly different to previous years with the inception of this year's inaugural Seafood Festival.


We start as usual with a grand opening on-stage underneath the Old Fish Market with a local legend (TBA). Then we welcome a whole bunch of local legends(!) in Brixham Town Band, who will give us an hour of fantastic music.

This year, we're moving the usual Saturday cooking demonstrations to Sunday - but don't fret...we're filling the time.

Live music and food stalls have long been the hallmark of a great saturday at the festival, so we're extending the timings to make up for the cooking demonstrations moving. More music. More food. More fun!

As you're enjoying yourself we'll be setting up the ninth annual BrixFest Firework Display. This year's display will be kicking off at the usual time of 9:50pm and can be viewed from anywhere around the inner harbour.

All events are weather permitting, and all events are FREE! See you there.

Official Opening with

local legend (TBA)

Live Music from Brixham

Town Band - From 11am

Live Music - All day from 12pm 'till Late

Each year BrixFest is officially opened by a local legend/VIP. In the past we've had Pride in Brixham's Mary Thomson, radio legend Matt Rogan, and loads more. 

This year's guest is a secret, for now.

Join the local legend at 11am to open the festival on-stage as they welcome in the ninth year of our humble festival.

Brixham Town Band are a staple of any BrixFest launch, and 2020 will be no different.

The amazing and talented bunch of local musicians always enjoy BrixFest and get audiences bopping along to their upbeat tunes. 

Brixham Town Band are celebrating their 93nd Anniversary Year in 2020. Come along and celebrate with them from 11am underneath The Old Fish Market, immediately following the official opening.

We're proud that our tradition of inviting local talent to perform at BrixFest year on year is still alive! 

In 2020 you'll see firm favourites and festival-regulars alongside newbies and young talent. We may even have a surprise for you along the way...HARBOUR headline BrixFest 2020.

Live Music rocks the Main Stage from 12pm-late.

Food Stalls: Open from 10am 'till Late

Grand Fireworks Display:  9:50pm (Cowboy time!)

What good would music and fireworks be without a good bit of festival food?

BrixFest combines the awesome harbourside eateries and cafes with the very best in local and independent market vendors.


In the past BrixFest has hosted portable pizza ovens, melted cheese vendors, cakeries, bakeries, and everything inbetween. 

What will 2020 have in store? Stay tuned to find out...

Now THIS is what it's all about! The main event. The big hoorah. The Grand Fireworks Display.

Cowboy time. 10 to 10 (say it really quickly and it sounds like the cowboy tune). Get it? 

BrixFest is renowned for its Fireworks each year and in 2020 we're going all out to beat last year's showing. 

You can watch from anywhere within the Inner Harbour. Free, but please dig deep and drop a few pennies into the collection buckets.
