On the Shore

There is a huge amount going on in Yarmouth during the Festival.
Many of the shore based activities are free, including: Street Entertainers from Covent Garden; Marching Bands; Morris Dancers with Strolling Musicians and Bands on every corner.

You can enjoy browsing the Market Stalls selling wares and produce from round the world, Farmers' Market and Many Local Crafts. Don't forget to visit the New Pavillion on the green. There is a Funfair for the Children and Displays for all including the Veteran & Vintage Vehicles in the Big Boys Toys field and the RNLI Lifeboat with search & rescue helicopter display and open day.
