Isle of Wight Day is the Island’s very own “Red Nose Day”, when the whole community is encouraged to celebrate by covering the Island in bunting, hold an event, take part in an event or just enjoy the hundreds of events being held all over the Island.
It’s about businesses, individuals, schools, clubs, associations, visitors coming together to raise money for local causes.
It’s about reunions and a day for family and friends to spend the weekend on the Island and to party with the whole community.
It’s a day to encourage visitors to come and enjoy the Island.
It’s about showcasing the Island’s talented people.
It’s about showing the world what a fabulous place the Island is.
Send us your images!
Last year we received thousands of images which were turned into a beautiful coffee table book called “Celebrating Together” which can be purchased from many of the Island book shops and the IW County Press shop for a cost of £15. All profits will be donated to the Isle of Wight High Sheriffs’ Trust. All profits will be donated to the Isle of Wight Day fund which will help fund Isle of Wight projects.
This year we are hoping that we will receive thousands of pictures again via social media and email. Take your pictures on your phone, iPad, tablet or camera and post on social media with the hashtag #IOWDay or #IOWDay2017.
You can also tag us in your pictures to draw our attention to them. To do this use the tags below:
