Ipswich Waterfront


Ipswich Maritime Festival 2017

The Ipswich Maritime Festival returns to the Waterfront this August to bring two days filled with music, historical re-enactments, a variety of vessels, street food, fairground rides, punch and judy, a range of stalls and children’s activities.

If that’s not enough we also have a fully programmed stage of live music performances, a bar area, fire performers and a firework finale on the Sunday night!

The 2017 event will take on a Viking theme based on the recapture of Ipswich from the Vikings 1100 years ago in 917AD.

Please be aware that we are no longer able to take applications for stall holders this year.


There are several Ipswich Borough Council car parks available throughout the town centre. You can find a full list here.
