Events and what's on in Weymouth

Weymouth is renowned for a packed events schedule and 2018 is no different!

During the summer months, there are frequent events taking place around Weymouth's beach and harbour, which are buzzing at most times but really come to life with crowds of event-goers!

Visitors can take in delicious seafood and champagne at the Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival, enjoy the fun of the carnival or take in some excellent shows at Weymouth Pavilion. Don't forget the excellent Wessex Folk Festival which takes place in and around the harbour and Hope Square. There's so much choice and something for everyone - and most of Weymouth's events are free to attend!
