Foyle Maritime Festival

Derry~Londonderry, County Londonderry
Foyle Maritime Festival


Get ready for summer 2022, when the most highly anticipated maritime event in the North West of Ireland will return.

After the suspension of The Clipper 2019-20 Race last year in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, and plans for the city to act as a Host Port Partner for the fifth time were put on hold, we are now delighted to inform you that our internationally acclaimed Foyle Maritime Festival will return to the city in July 2022 alongside the return of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race fleet.

The Foyle Maritime Festival theme for 2022 is 'What Lies Beneath' focusing on the natural beauty of our oceans, rivers and lakes, and the onus on all of us to protect and preserve marine life. Take the Pledge will be the message, with a dedicated campaign within the festival encouraging local people to sign up to being more eco-friendly.

Highlights of this year's event include the Legenderry Street Food Festival, live music events, on street animation, marine themed installations, and much more still to be confirmed as the final touches are put to the programme.
