September events: Sample some fantastic seafood at the Newquay Fish Festival

Newquay, Cornwall

Feast upon the edible delights that swim Cornwall’s waters as local chefs cook up a treat, right before your eyes, at the Newquay Fish Festival.

Every September, Newquay rounds off the summer festival season with a celebration of the finest seafood the local waters have to offer. Based around the historic harbour, the festival sees chefs from local hotels and restaurants giving live cookery demonstrations using freshly caught seafood and shellfish.

They like to party in Newquay, and every night there are open-air events involving fancy dress, live music and more delicious seafood. The festival is most definitely a family affair, with Punch and Judy shows, sand castle competitions and other child-friendly activities happening on the beach. And, if you’re really lucky, you might just spot the famous Newquay Harbour seals bobbing about in the waves.

This year's Newquay Fish Festival takes place between 13-15 September, and entry is free for all visitors.
