I have previously wrote about my favourite places to see in Brighton & Hove still there is much more going on here… especially in Summer months but there is always something to do, all year round. Apparently there is at least one festival or fair taking place in Brighton every single month of the year!
Many of the events are happening on yearly basis so I have put together a little calendar in case you are planning a trip to the South Coast. Have I forgotten anything? Let me know if the comments section below.
- The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink (closing in the middle of January)
- Brighton Marathon (12-14 April 2019)
- Brighton Fringe
- Children’s Parade opening Brighton Festival
- Brighton Festival
- Foodies Festival on the Hove Lawns
- Brighton Pride (3-5 August 2018)
- Brighton Art Fair at the Brighton Dome – Corn Exchange
- Brighton Breeze VW Split Screen Run – VW vehicles converge on Madeira Drive (6 October 2018)
- Brightona – motorcycle event on Madeira Drive (14 October 2018)
- Made Brighton – the design and craft fair (24 November 2018)
- The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink (opening in the first days of November)
- Christmas market around Churchill Square Shopping Centre
- Burning the Clocks – Winter Solstice event (21 December)

Although those are yearly events the dates may change slightly, therefore visit organisers website to find out the exact time and date.
Except for annual events there are plenty one off events taking place in Brighton & Hove, such as Snailspace Brighton & Hove (15 September 2018 – 18 November 2018), an art trail raising money for Martlets Hospice. Last year there were Snow Dogs, this year we are going to have snails!
There will be also Sami Swoi Summer Polish Festival in Brighton’s Hove Park (8 July 2018).
