Burnham Quay Day © Sue Pelling

Quay Day is on the last Bank holiday Monday of August, and tends to mark the end of the first weekend of Burnham Week.

Celebrating the waterfront and the River Crouch, it offers live music all day, great stalls, paddle-boarding demonstrations, children’s rides, children’s fancy dress, gig racing, and more.

You are encouraged to dress up as a pirate or wear maritime gear.
