Foyle Maritime Festival Update for Businesses within Festival Zone along McFarland Quay
Please note that the Clipper Race Fleet is due to arrive from 10th July 2018 onwards and will berth at the Foyle Marina until Sunday 22nd July 2018. In anticipation of the crowds that may want to come and see the race fleet we may have to put traffic restrictions in place from the evening of 9th July 2018 onwards and possibly close through access from Baronet Street to Fletcher Avenue depending on the scale of the crowds in the area. We will make this decision on the advice of the PSNI.
In the event of restricted access/no through access there will be a traffic management system in place with security that will be on hand to assist and advise at all times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and assure you that we will endeavour to limit these restrictions where and when possible.
All businesses are asked to comply with the following daily schedule for deliveries/logistics when we will be able to facilitate traffic and street cleansing within the festival zone.

  • From Monday 9th July until Sunday 22nd July 2018
  • Full access will be available until 10am every day with restricted access from 10am until 10pm
  • The festival site will be open from 10am until 11pm on Saturday 21st July 2018
  • The festival site will open at 10am and close at 6pm on Sunday 22nd July 2018

Please note that although through access may be restricted within the zone between Baronet Street and Fletcher Avenue, drop offs will be facilitated where possible. We hope the festival and all the visitors it attracts bring benefit to your business during this time. We would welcome any comments/suggestions that you feel may assist us in ensuring the festival is a success for all concerned.
