Sandown is a hive of activity during the summer months with carnivals, regattas, fun days and special events.
The summer carnival is the Isle of Wight's first of the season, taking place in July each year. The illuminated carnival and regatta take place in August, bringing hundreds of spectators to the town to enjoy the fun and activities. Every Christmas Eve, the High Street transforms into a winter wonderland of fun with live music, games, street entertainers and a great festive atmosphere for the Christmas Eve Fun Day.
Watch out for new events such as the Funtasia Festival in July and the Festival of the Sea in September.
