If you’re looking for a fantastic weekend of family fun, laughter, entertainment and music which also caters for seafood lovers then make a date with Tarbert Seafood Festival from July 2-3.
Having been cancelled for the last two years, this year’s festival is back bigger and better than ever. However, the traditional aspects of the festival continue with this year’s Seafood Queen Keira Guy, accompanied by her Princesses Caelyn Graham and Macey Fair, leading the festivities.
It all starts on Saturday morning with stalls lining the harbourside, selling everything from crafts to tasty treats, before the official part of the day takes place – the crowing of the Seafood Queen.
Make sure you don’t miss the legendary Seafood Festival parade – or come and join in – the theme this year is Down on the Farm.
Street entertainers will make sure your Saturday afternoon is full of surprises and, of course, there will be lots of seafood on offer – both to buy from stalls or to sample from local hotels and restaurants. There will also be cooking demonstrations to help you brush up your culinary skills!
And that’s not all – make sure you’ve packed your dancing shoes as Beer on the Pier bursts back onto the stage for Seafood Festival Sunday. This year we welcome back crowd favourites The Democrats and Feeva and introduce a tribute act to Robbie Williams and Freddie Mercury – so singing voices will also be required!
Tarbert Seafood Festival is one of the most anticipated events on the festival calendar, so don’t miss out – we’ll see you there!
