Celebrating the liberation of Guernsey from German forces in 1945 after five years of occupation, this island-wide event features a series of parades and pageants, as well as a popular rock concert and firework extravaganza.
Sure Festival of Comedy
The best European comedy talent comes together for this lively stand-up festival. Film screenings, big-name shows and open mike nights make it the funniest event on Guernsey’s calendar.
St Peter Port Carnival
This week-long event takes over Guernsey’s capital with a succession of parades and performances. Street musicians and bands provide live entertainment throughout the festival.
Based at the Castle Cornet in St Peter Port, this family festival has a historical theme. Highlights include archery lessons and competitions, sword-fighting displays, traditional music, and a host of arts and crafts workshops.
It might sound like a classical musical festival, but this popular six-week event is actually directed at promoting Guernsey’s many restaurants. During the Tennerfest, a selection of the island’s best eateries offer discounted, all-inclusive menus starting at just £10.
