Conwy Quay Day is the opportunity for all of the family to enjoy the fun and excitement on shore as well as in the water. Watch as locals and visitors join hands to participate in skill tests and rowing competitions right in front of the beautiful 13th. century Conwy castle and town walls. With live music and entertainment, RAF and Lifeboat displays, exhibitions and sponsors stands as well as a very popular torch-lit procession for children, Conwy Quay Day is an integral and significant part of the Conwy River Festival and like the festival expands year on year.
