Events

From farmer's markets to summer shows, food festivals and town carnivals, Guernsey is ready to entertain you.

Outdoor concerts and productions utilise the very best locations with both Candie Gardens and Castle Cornet offering a unique atmosphere and breath-taking backdrops.

Floral Guernsey Festival Weeks and Walking Weeks in both spring and autumn offer visitors a change to explore the island on foot with the help of a guide.

There are weekly markets and rural rambles, summer shows and food festivals, but for a real Guernsey day out visit on 9 May and experience Liberation Day.

The Town Carnival brings St Peter Port to life in the summer with bands busking and a host of entertainment for the children including traditional Punch and Judy.

For the more active, there is the recently-reinstated Guernsey Marathon. For those who would rather settle in over a long lunch, a six-week autumn food festival offers terrific value for money.
