Now in its fifth year, Ocean City Festival returns in September with exciting events taking place across the city.

The Ocean City Festival will celebrate everything that makes Plymouth’s waterfront location - and its relationship with the sea - so special, while establishing Plymouth’s reputation as Britain’s Ocean City. 

The theme for 2016 is 'Ocean Literacy' and the festival's exciting programme of events will appeal to all ages; These include seafood and maritime cultural events, education, marine science and technology and many hands-on activities for the whole family to enjoy. 

The festival also has a business side which focuses on Plymouth's diverse marine companies and expertise.

Visit the festival website for up-to-date details about all the events that are taking place.
