Staged by three of the oldest horticultural societies, these two-day events feature entertainment and competitions for the whole family! The South Show plays host to the Bonny Baby and children’s fancy dress competition. The West Show features rides and live music, and the North Show is famous for the “Battle of Flowers”, a parade of floats decorated with paper flowers.

The town’s seafront and piers are closed to traffic and taken over by stalls selling food, goodies and crafts. A highly popular annual event in St Peter Port with local residents and visitors alike, display the highlight of the “man-powered flight” competition, in which islanders propel themselves into the marina wearing creative homemade vehicles in an attempt to fly. Something you do not want to miss!
