There are a number of Ipswich events held throughout the year. Some have started in recent years and have grown to become a treasured part of the annual calendar.
Others were started 30 years ago and local parents find themselves returning to them with their own kids.
Summer Ipswich Events
There is plenty to do in summer in Ipswich. Crane Beach is always a great place to spend some time.
Outside of that, there is an eight-week free outdoor music series called Downtown Tuesdays.
Every Tuesday night in July and August, there will be a band or a dance on the Riverwalk.
Another very popular Ipswich event in summer is the Foam Frolic.
This is a combination of fun for kids and training for firefighters. The fire department sets up a truck and practices a drill using foam.
It is sprayed from the top of a ladder and the town’s children play around underneath.
One of the most popular events in the autumn is Ipswich Illuminated.
