Plouézec is twinned with the Irish town of Ballinamore and the twinning committee hosts a Fest Noz festival every August around the Moulin de Craca which regularly draws thousands of visitors. There is traditional Irish and Breton music, as well as food and drink available. Especially popular is the famous moules-frites, which is a dish of mussels and French fries.
It has been strongly influenced by the sea and local people often refer to themselves as enfants de la mer (children of the sea). Water-based sports such as fishing, sailing, and swimming are very popular and are practised by locals and tourists alike.
Inhabitants of Plouézec are called plouézécains in French.
The municipality launched a linguistic plan through Ya d'ar brezhoneg on November 14, 2008.
