Rocquaine Regatta: A fun filled day at the end of July, held in and around Rocquaine Bay on the west coast of Guernsey. Unusual boat races take place throughout the day with fishing boats, small sailing and motor boats participating in casual yet highly competitive races.

North Show & Battle of Flowers: One of Guernsey’s main outdoor summer events, it takes place each August in the wonderful rural setting of Sausmarez Manor. The programme of events includes showcasing local and off-island talent, fun fair and numerous stalls selling refreshments and other items, along with the parade of colourful floats and firework display.

Guernsey Air Display: In September, Guernsey’s skies welcome the Guernsey Air Display, an absolute treat and thrill for anyone with a love of planes and history.
