About the Social Events
Please note that due to the COVID-19 crisis, the programme of events has not yet been finalised for 2020.
A variety of social events take place throughout the River Festival. The main events are the prize givings (on each race day with main prize givings on the second Sunday) as well as nautically themed events and entertainment on Quay Day, which has previously included: On the water events, a fancy dress competition for the kids, a treasure hunt, clowns and rides, the Great Duck Race and a variety of other attractions. In addition, smaller social events take place at the race briefings and LA-LA rally briefings.
The two local yacht clubs – the North Wales Cruising Club in Conwy and the Conway Yacht Club on the Deganwy side of the river – offer entertainment and hospitality for competitors, as well as hosting many of the social events.
Getting across the river couldn’t be easier, with the River Taxi service, provided by the North Wales Cruising Club.
