Arbroath Seafest

Arbroath SeafestArbroath Sea Fest is an annual festival of the Sea held along Arbroath's seafront and centring around the town's charming harbour and new marina, and this year is adopting the theme of 2A Day at the Seaside". Established in 1997, Sea Fest is a popular celebration of Arbroath's marvellous maritime heritage, attracting 30,000 visitors over its two-day duration in August each year.

The star of the show is undoubtedly the Arbroath Smokie - haddock smoked over hardwood - but past years have also seen trout specialities, suckling pig, venison and ostrich meat, available from the Smokie Trail, comprising 70-odd stalls along the harbour.

For those who enjoy a bit of retail therapy there is a wide range of stalls selling everything from fresh seafood to handmade jewellery, crafts and confectionery.

There will also be the regular Seafest features of traditionally smoked fish, boat-dressing competitions, fishing displays, modern and traditional music.

Visitors can also sample the delights of locally-caught produce at the Gourmet Galley and enjoy demonstrations by some of Scotland's acclaimed chefs.

Street theatre and music such as Scottish pipe bands and local brass bands play a big part in maintaining the lively carnival atmosphere.

And last but not least, don't worry; the kids aren't left to amuse themselves. There are plenty of activities for little ones ranging from kite flying to teddy bear parachute drops.
