What’s On at the Festival?

This year’s Dorset Seafood Festival will be held on Festival Weekend, 7th & 8th September, on the Weymouth Peninsula.

The 2024 Festival promises to be yet another spectacular celebration of irresistible local food and drink, caught, grown and produced by an array of amazing small, artisan businesses. Dorset waters are home to over 40 species of fish and shellfish, and our #seafoodstreetfood menu is an adventure for every seafood lover. Delicious seafood perfectly accompanied by fine English wines or delicious Dorset ales. But the festival doesn’t stop at food and drink, there’s so much more for all the family to discover.

And this year the Festival will stay open until 8pm on Saturday, so you can enjoy a sundowner, one last dance and, of course, the best seafood in the country!
