It's happening. BrixFest returns for 2019!
Our small but dedicated committee have been working away over the cold autumn and winter months to bring you something special - the 8th (yes EIGHTH!) instalment of BrixFest. We're so excited to show you what we've been up to.
Firstly, our annual Official Opening is back with a yet-to-be-announced VIP guest, on Saturday 25th May at 11am. The day gets better and better as we move into the afternoon, with live-cooking demonstrations on stage. As usual, you'll get to eat the results of those demonstrations.Live Music and delicious food and drink from local stall holders follows in the lead up to our evening entertainment. Infamous local band Harbour make their BrixFest debut, headlining the Main Stage at 8:20pm. Our Grand Fireworks Display returns at 9:50pm, and you can view it from anywhere around in the inner harbour.
On Sunday, the teams will rally for the fourth annual BrixFest Dragonboat Challenge. Can anyone knock The Manor Inn off their perch? Or will they return to defeat the challenges and reclaim their crown? Come and find out at Breakwater Beach. Racing kicks off around 10:30. Food and drink available from our stall holders and the wonderful Breakwater Bistro.
Monday's annual Kid's Day will be back, too - with a few new surprises including a craft marquee full of wonderful, locally made trinkets and artwork. There will be free family activities for all to take part in as usual so bring yourselves and a sense of adventure!
We reckon everyone's pretty aware of the current state of our world, and the environment we all live in. Especially living by the sea, we need to be more and more careful about the way we treat our planet. That's why in 2019, BrixFest is embracing a theme of sustainability. We'll have more about this for you soon, but expect to see a huge reduction in single-use-plastics and a whole host of community-led initiatives launching in 2019 to help make the festival we all love deal with its responsibility to the environment in a much better and more sustainable manner. That includes changing the materials we use in our Fireworks Display, by the way. Anyway - more about that soon.
Wednesday's Vintage Car Rally will be back for all you lovers of motors - back at Breakwater Beach on Wednesday 29th May 2019.
In many ways, BrixFest 2018 was the most challenging festival yet. In many others - it was the most enjoyable for the committee. That's because you (yes, you) always turn out and support our year's work and never fail to make us smile. We look forward to welcoming you back soon - in fact, we can't wait!
Favourite events make the cut and 2018 will see the continuation of the Grand Firework Display, Dragonboat Challenge, Kid's Day, Local Live Music and our famous Cooking Demonstrations.
