Celebrate the heritage of Tarbert village and with delicious freshly caught local seafood.
The Seafood Festival
A true veneration of the wonderful fresh produce we are surrounded by here, this two-day event is a firm favourite with the locals, and enjoyed by all ages. Harbour Street becomes a hive of activity; lined with stalls offering local delicacies, live music, and even cookery demonstrations and competitions at the fish quay. Children are kept easily entertained with the fancy dress parade, crowning of the Seafood Queen and her princesses, and marvel at the local business’ window displays – all pertaining to a theme.
Don’t miss ‘Beer on the Pier’ on Sunday, with live music and dancing all afternoon.
Traditional boats fill the marina for the weekend, with other events on the day.
Traditional Boat Festival
Flag-decorated traditional boats fill the marina for the weekend, having sailed in from all over the UK. Take a stroll along the pontoons to admire their finery and read about their history, before heading to the recreation area for refreshments, traditional crafts and perhaps a shot at the ‘Greasy-Pole’ competition!
Free community BBQ and live music take place in the marquee in the evening.
