Seafest is an annual festival for those who enjoy good food, good company and a good time. 

In it's 23rd year, Seafest celebrates life by the sea with festival vendors offering abundant seafood delights, fantastic choices for Landlubbers, Classic Pimms, craft beer and regional wines. 

Sea themed costumes are a must. If you don’t see yourself as a sea creature – a super hero will do.
