Cowes Fireworks

A spectacular fireworks display that lights the night sky for miles around has marked the end of Cowes Week since the regatta's early years and is extremely popular with competitors, locals and mainland spectators.

Supported by donations from Red Funnel and other sponsors, this year’s display starts at 21.30 hrs and promises a blue theme. Cowes seafront and the town are normally packed to bursting on firework night so why not join our fireworks cruise and get one of the best seats in the house, just off the entrance to the harbour!
