Paignton Regatta has been running for over 170 years. Since the move of the sailing events to a combined Torbay Regatta, the focus of the event has been on fun and games on Paignton Green.

The regatta provides nine days of free entertainment, with a focus on families. Our event is enjoyed by local residents and holidaymakers alike, supporting our community and local businesses who benefit from the tourist trade.

The regatta has always supported local and national charities and continues to be a not-for-profit organisation that exists to provide a platform for local charities and organisations to raise money for their causes, as well as raising money from sponsorship, donations and stall traders to ensure the future of our event.

All the events that you enjoy are organised by a small but dedicated volunteer committee of Paigntonians from all walks of life; who work throughout the year to ensure the continued survival and growth of Regatta.

We are always on the lookout for people to volunteer. You don't have to join the committee and any offers of help are gratefully received. We especially need people who have some time during regatta week to help us with the day-to-day running of our event. If you are interested or have any questions, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

After the success of our evening music sessions in previous years, our stage will be hosting a series of Regatta Rocks events and I'm delighted to announce some fantastic headline tribute acts on the main stage.

Regatta has always been a mix of the traditional and the new. We will be bringing back a number of our popular events this year and will have a brand-new layout on the green for you.

Details of our programme are still being finalised so please check our website for the lastest information.

As well as our stage entertainment, we’ll have demonstrations and displays for all the family; plus a fully-licensed bar, hot and cold food and a number of stalls selling crafts or raising money and awareness for local and national causes. Anderton & Rowlands funfair will be joining us and bringing all the fun of the fair to Paignton Green.

You can pick up your free programme in shops and holiday parks around Torbay from July and we will have plenty of copies at Regatta HQ on the Green. If you have a programme, you won't miss a thing!

Whichever of our events you attend, I hope you and your whole family will have a super time. Enjoy Regatta and please remember that we rely on your donations to keep going, so remember to put some coins in our collecting buckets !
