14th annual festival of the sea back at historic quay.
Newquay harbour will once again be transformed into a Mecca for foodies, who enjoy the fine fresh ingredients available from Cornwall and its dramatic coastline this September.
Over three days, top chefs from across the region will show visitors how to produce the finest fish dishes, during a series of demonstrations, with the opportunity to try the finished product. The quay which traces it’s history back the the 15th Century, will once again be packed with mouth watering food stalls, offering food from around the region and around the world. With plenty for fish fans and no fish fans to enjoy.
There will be traditional crafts, local groups and artists and the will also host a fascinating exhibition by Newquay Old Cornwall Society that will take visitors on a journey back through time and explain the history of the pilchard fishery that once dominated the area with its ‘cellars’ and huers huts.
In the main marque visitors can grab a drink and relax with music from local singers and several choirs including the Fishermen’s Wives. In the evenings the marque will host a tradition Ceilli with live music provided by a family that has been hosting these Cornish dances for 200 years. On the Saturday night the bunting will come out as the amazing Mount Charles Band bring out the pomp for a Last Night of the Proms concert.
