Every two years, Hythe Corporation hosts the Hythe Venetian  Fete, a unique aquatic event on the Royal Military Canal.

Numerous local organisations, business and individuals create decorated floats which travel up and down the canal. The rafts are towed by small rowboats powered by a couple of oarsmen, dressed up in costume.  Seating for spectators lines the banks.
 
There are entertainments, free band concerts and at dusk fireworks accompany the illuminated floating tableaux.
 
The Venetian Fete is normally held in August.
