Mayflower Week (30 Aug 2020 - 5 Sept 2020)

The Mayflower 400

Mayflower 400 Commemoration August 2020

August 1620 saw the Pilgrim Fathers, in their two ships, The Mayflower and The Speedwell depart from Bayards Cove in Dartmouth for the New World America. Unfortunately, the Speedwell started sinking 300 miles off Lands End and they all returned to Plymouth. the Mayflower continued the journey alone to America and created history.

Dartmouth is one of the eleven towns participating in the National Mayflower Partnership and, throughout the 12 months from Thanksgiving November 2019, will be commemorating the 400 year anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower with a series of exciting events. These events will involve the whole town and we hope will leave a lasting legacy well beyond 2020.

Some of the top events being planned in Dartmouth for Mayflower 400 include;

Dartmouth Matflower Candlelit
"Much Ado About Nothing" by William Shakespeare
Grand Dart River Pageant
Visiting Warships, Tall Ships, Mayflower Replica
Mayflower Closing Event

All events and dates are provisional and subject to change.
