Welcome to the Pembrokeshire Fish Week
2015 Festival Cancelled - we will be back in 2016!
Wales finest, friendliest, funkiest fish festival!
Join us in celebrating the West Wales County of Pembrokeshire’s first class fish and seafood, spectacular coastline, wonderful beaches, great angling, culture and fascinating maritime heritage.
Love good food, enjoy beach and out door activities or just great family fun, then you will definitely enjoy the Pembrokeshire Fish Week Festival and there is plenty for non fish lovers too.
If you like great fresh fish and shellfish, to eat and to cook - you’re in for a treat! Tuck into the freshest local produce at the county's restaurants and pubs, from local lobster to fresh crab salads and seafood extravaganzas, taster menus to seafood tapas, a foraged picnic or good old beer-battered fish with hand-cut Pembrokeshire chips. There is plenty to choose from a seaside lunch to sophisticated evening meal. (2016 events, coming soon).
There are also lots of opportunities for keen cooks to learn how to get the best out of their fish and shellfish in a variety of demonstrations and master classes with top chefs. Last year's line-up included Bryn Williams, Paul Rankin, Tim Maddams, Will Holland and Guy Morris as well as fish filliters Duncan and Sue Lucas and Nick Bryant.
From a relaxing evening trip on the Cleddau to adrenalin assured outdoor adventure there are plenty of ways for you to experience Pembrokeshire’s breathtaking coastline. Try eco fishing adventures in a kayak, coasteering, a taster session in sailing at Saundersfoot’s Festival of The Sea, or catch your supper on a mackerel fishing trip. (2016 events, coming soon).
If you’re bringing the family, or looking for some fishy frolics, no squidding Fish Week is Skate! There’s so much fun in store! Explore crystal clear rock pools and find out what lives on our beaches in seashore safaris. Learn how to surf and fish, take part in seaside sports, make some wonderful creations in beach-inspired art and craft workshops.
The festival is a fishing paradise for all levels – from the experienced angler to the beginner and to ‘just have a go’. Keen anglers can enjoy some excellent fishing and take part in sea angling and coarse fishing championships, whilst families and beginners have plenty of choice for fishing coaching at local fisheries throughout the county.
The 2016 festival week casts off with a food lovers and family day at Milford Fish Docks on Saturday June 25th, where you can enjoy a carnival atmosphere, with music, entertainment and activities for all ages, alongside demonstrations, sea food to buy, taste and enjoy, exhibitions and stalls, and you certainly don’t need to like fish to enjoy the fun!
