Mayflower Week 2020

Marking the 400 years since the sailing of the Mayflower in 1620, Mayflower Week takes place between 14th-20th September 2020.

 

A new event for Plymouth in 2020 that will include marking the very date the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth on 16th September, heralding an amazing week of activity, including; a visit from the Matthew, a replica 15th-century tall ship, daily fly-bys, an international field gun competition and The Navy’s Rehabilitation Triathlon, traditionally held in Lympstone but transferred to Plymouth for 2020.

The week will be crowned by two further headline events:

Mayflower Ceremony

On 16th September 2020, a four-nation civic ceremony commemorating the Mayflower’s journey and legacy on the day of the Mayflower departure, attended by representatives from the UK, US, Netherlands and Wampanoag. There will be schools and mass participation elements, making sure that Plymouth’s residents are at the heart of this special day.

Mayflower Muster

On 19th and 20th September 2020 we will celebrate Plymouth's heritage as one of the world's foremost Naval bases - with a heritage dating back to 1691.

In partnership with the US and Dutch Armed Forces, a spectacular festival including live displays, interactive demonstrations and a host of other activity will take place over two days, signalling the end of Mayflower Week.
