Newquay may be best known for its great surf and beautiful beaches, but it’s also home to one of Cornwall’s most established foodie events. The Newquay Fish Festival takes place every September and it highlights the town’s role as a traditional working harbour that serves up fresh fish and seafood throughout the year.
The festival is a great way for those on holiday in the area to get a glimpse into its role in Cornwall’s ever-growing foodie scene. Highlights of the festival always include cookery demonstrations from top chefs and the chance to sample some of the town’s finest fish.
The Newquay fish festival is an excellent opportunity for local businesses to promote the area’s fish, shellfish and other delicious produce. Newquay Fish Festival is held every September and all activity centres around the harbour, so there’s a real family atmosphere at the event each year. This event sees the traditional fishing community show those enjoying the holiday scene just how much work goes into the supply of fresh fish and just how many ways there are to enjoy it.
