The Swanage Fish Festival is back for 2023 and set to be a fantastic event. This two-day extravaganza takes place in Prince Albert Gardens and provides plenty of fish-themed fun for all the family.
17th & 18th June 2023
Seafood festival in Dorset
Swanage has firmly cemented itself as a ‘go-to’ destination for foodies, with an excellent selection of restaurants to choose from. The area has a rich fishing history and the festival aims to celebrate this by showcasing the wonderful selection of fresh produce available in the waters just a couple of miles from our shores.
Over the course of the weekend, there will be numerous demonstrations from seafood chefs as well as plenty of locally sourced seafood to sample. Taste fresh fish landed from Swanage day boats and enjoy a glass of champagne with oysters overlooking the bay.
As you walk around the scenic gardens you’ll find plenty of stalls to peruse. There’s so much delicious food on offer, you won’t know where to start!
A fully stocked bar and live entertainment from local bands provide the perfect soundtrack to a day spent by the sea. The event typically runs from morning to midnight on Saturday and morning to 5 pm on Sunday
