Cowes Big Lunch 2019
Now recognised as the Town’s official annual get together, the Cowes Big Lunch returns again on Sunday, 2nd June 2019 for an even bigger free community celebration. From midday, residents of Cowes and their friends and families are invited to join together to for a giant picnic in Northwood Park on the lawns of the House, with lots of free entertainment and fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Organised and sponsored by a number of well known organisations from the Town including the Island Sailing Club, The Royal Yacht Squadron and Red Funnel, the event regularly sees over 2,500 people enjoy this free day out.
Starting with a marching band parade into Northwood Park at 11.30am, an open-air blessing follows at 11.45am to thank everyone for attending. At midday the celebrations start with a full programme of live music that will carry on through out the afternoon.
Other highlights of the day include a fun dog show, a children’s activity arena and the popular Cowes Bake Off competition which sees large numbers of entries from enthusiastic cake bakers across the Town.
The event also acts as a showcase for local businesses, charities and organisations, with many exhibitors in attendance on the lawns through out the day promoting themselves to the community.
