Bideford Water Festival 2021

Our crazy cardboard boat regatta was a model boat regatta in 2020 and streamed on social media. Hoping Lockdown restrictions will be lifted by July 2021!

Water Festival 2021

Last year, in order to comply with government guidance on social distancing we didn't invite crowds of people to join us on Bideford Quay but instead organised a model cardboardboat race which was streamed on social media.

This is a fabulous community event that the Rotary Club of Bideford are proud to continue to organise. There are heaps of photos of the last few years' Water Festivals on Facebook if you have been involved and want to look for picture of yourself.
