The V-BAY FESTIVAL celebrates our unique Victorian town – a weekend of entertainment, fun and food all around the town, on the esplanade, on the beach and even on the water! Activities cater for the whole family and when you are exhausted you’ll receive a warm welcome from shopkeepers, publicans, restaurateurs, hoteliers and townspeople. Welcome to our beautiful seaside town situated at the sunny, unspoilt southern tip of the Isle of Wight.

V-Bay festival provides an extension to the summer fun for as many visitors as possible. Ventnor and its surrounding countryside are an excellent holiday destination and the weather in this most southerly part of the Isle of Wight is often sunny right into the autumn.

We aim to empower the people of Ventnor and district by encouraging economic growth. By spotlighting local musical and artistic talent we will help to promote local businesses and the hospitality industry. As an added benefit, V-Bay is able to provide a fundraising framework which enables local charities.

V-Bay is a non-profit making event with any proceeds being donated to Ventnor charities, organised by a group of volunteers affiliated with the Ventnor Business Association.

In 2009 the V-Bay charity was the local cancer charity, P.A.T.C.H.. In 2010 any proceeds will go to the Ventnor Enhancement Fund. Two of their current projects which V-Bay might hope to fund are:
