Now in its third year, the Isle of Wight Day is the Island's very own "Red Nose Day", where the entire community is encouraged to cover the Isle of Wight in celebratory bunting and to enjoy the hundreds of events being held all over the Island, in aid of local causes. It's a day of reunions, for family and friends to spend the weekend on the Island and to party with the whole community, like you've never partied before! Come and wave a flag with us all on the weekend of 21-23 September 2018. 


logoCreated in 2016, this will be the second year we're celebrating, and events promise to be bigger and better than ever before with big events planned for Ryde and Newport.

Live entertainment, parades, food and drink and parties across the Island, this is one day you'll want to make sure you're on the Island. Special offers in restaurants, cafes, visitor attractions and some fabulous accommodation and travel deals too. 

Check out our accommodation listings for some great places to stay. 

With its golden beaches, beautiful countryside and historical background the Island also has a wonderful community of talented, interesting and diverse people. Isle of Wight day is about bringing them all together and having one big Island-wide party, covering the Island in bunting to show the world what a fabulous place this is.
