Ports Fest



Welcome to Ports Fest the new name for Portsmouth Festivities!

We are an award-winning festival and have been providing cultural experiences in the City of Portsmouth for over 20 years, engaging with multiple audiences in Portsmouth venues and surrounding areas.

Our ambitious multi-arts programme tries to respond to the city’s identity, a commuter belt, a sea city, an area of rich cultural history.

Ports Fest is ambitious about delivering work of the highest quality that illuminates the lives of people from all backgrounds. The growth of the festival since its inception in 1999 has been recognised as largely due to the active participation of its arts and cultural partners and the efforts of a core of dedicated individuals.
