For a small county, it's a whopper of a festival.
Pembrokeshire Fish Week is an award winning festival, celebrating the Welsh county's first-class seafood, spectacular coastline, award winning beaches, and fascinating maritime heritage.
The events and activities feature around fish and shell fish, eating out, fish cookery and preparation demonstrations, angling competitions and coaching, on water adventure and outdoor activities, waterway travel, environmental and educational activities, arts, craft and culture and for all ages!
So……. how did it come about? The festival began as a small event focused around a national Sewin Competition on three West Wales Rivers in 1999. Since then, the festival has grown significantly and now incorporates many businesses and organisations with more than 200 events and activities during the last week of June at various locations the length and breadth of the county, launching with an opening event at Milford Haven.
