Last year's 'what's on' page is below. This page will be updated in January 2020, for next year's festival.
Saturday: Back with a bang!
Saturday at BrixFest is legendary. It has become the busiest day at the festival because it's filled with so many varied family friendly activities.
We think of Saturday as our showpiece - a day to showcase Brixham and all it has to offer.
The day begins at 11am with the official opening with a VIP guest, followed by live music from Brixham Town Band. The Town Band have a long standing tradition of performing at the BrixFest opening ceremony, and 2019 will be no different.
Live Music and food stalls are on show throughout the day and this all culminates in our huge grand firework display at 9:50pm.
The annual BrixFest firework display needs no introduction (but we're going to give it one anyway! Join us for the 8th annual display - it'll knock your socks off!
Saturday 25th May will be packed full of activity, and don't forget: the vast majority of events at BrixFest 2019 are FREE!
We can't wait to see you there.

Food, glorious food!
Each year a group of local chefs club together to demonstrate their knowledge of local ingredients and sustainable fish: by cooking on-stage to our live audience!
Live cameras will show you exactly how they're doing it on TV screens, so this really is like a cooking show...just on the harbour, with food you can taste! Demos take place 12-2pm on the main stage.

Live Music rocks the Main Stage from 2pm-late.
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. Enjoy a mix of freshly prepared stone baked pizzas, crepes with a twist: or buy some bread from a local bakers or some olives from the olive guys! We literally have it all.
Now THIS is what it's all about! The main event. The big hoorah. The Grand Fireworks Display.
BrixFest is renowned for its Fireworks each year and in 2019 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.
