Now in its fifth year, Plymouth will see the return of the spectacular Ocean City Festival, sponsored by City College Plymouth, from the 11 to 25 September 2016, 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, whilst establishing Plymouth’s reputation as Britain’s Ocean City.

The festival offers an exciting programme of events which will appeal to all ages, offering a real variety including seafood and maritime cultural events, education, marine science and technology, plus 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.

On behalf of the Council and its partners – Plymouth University, City College Plymouth, the National Marine Aquarium, Devon Chamber of Commerce, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science, Sport Environment, the Marine Biological Association, Plymouth Waterfront Partnership, Plymouth City Centre Company, the Culture Board and Destination Plymouth – welcome aboard!
