Ramsgate Festival is an arts and culture festival by Ramsgate Arts, a registered charity launched in 2009, now working with Art Aha as co-producers, with the shared aim of using culture to contribute to the regeneration of the town. 

The Festival has evolved every year since it began in 2010.  In 2015 it became  'Summer Squall and then the ‘Ramsgate Festival’ in 2016. The programme has continued to expand and diversify each year, always trying new ideas and working alongside local traders.

In 2016 the festival moved to July, having originally taken place over the August Bank holiday.

It now runs alongside the Royal Temple Yacht Club's historic annual Ramsgate Week sailing regatta, ,known as the friendly alternative to Cowes.  The move opens up a first week in the vital summer holiday period, encouraging new visitors and providing high quality and frequently surprising, cultural activities for our local people and visitors.

The theme for 2017 is ‘Dream Marine’ a celebration of Ramsgate's unique maritime location.
