Events on The Isle of Wight, this very pretty little island, are outstanding for variety and interest. There is always something going on.

Events on The Isle of Wight sets out to list the many and varied events in this delightful Island.  There are so many more these days that it has been found that most months need a page of their own!!!

So please browse them all. Get out your diary and plan your year. Perhaps organise short breaks to make the most of the events you would love to attend. The Island is enchanting whatever the time of year.

Some events do not have their dates for this year yet. As soon as they are to hand we will put that right. For now the event will be listed in the month it is normally held.

There are so many things to do on The Isle of Wight, often no matter what the weather. Why not explore the many cycleways and footpaths. Attend one of the many festivals on Festival Island. Explore the many towns that dot the Island

The Isle of Wight is arguably the smallest ceremonial county in England, but it packs a punch for scenery and events. Whatever you are looking for this intriguing island seems to provide! Events on the Isle of Wight include such delights as Music Festivals, Walking Festivals, Cycling Festivals and the list goes on and on.

Newport is the capital. Cowes is the centre of sailing, arguably in the United Kingdom and the world, Ryde is a sandy seaside resort and an entrance for the ferries from Portsmouth. Sandown and Shanklin have two of the prettiest beaches. Ventnor is a joy, if hilly. Places worth visiting are aplenty, some lovely hideaways not mentioned here!

Anyone with events in Hampshire who would like to list their event here please contact us via the Feedback form, we would love to hear from you. The event should have its own website so that our visitors can find you and obtain more information.

Those events should be capable of attracting crowds, large village fete size and above, similar to those listed here.

Our observations show that www.travelwessex.com's main visitors are those that love walking, cycling, horse riding and other like minded pursuits, but we welcome all attractions as we have many other visitors as well that we love to cater for. Posting events on this page is free.

We reserve the right not to include events in Hampshire that are not suitable for legal or other reasons.
