About the Festival

The first St Mawes Fish Festival took place in 2006. Planned and organised by the local fishermen, chefs and restaurants, with the support of the Pier and Harbour Company, the event has become a popular date in Cornwall's event calendar, and has grown year on year.

Stalls showcase the very best in fresh, locally caught fish and seafood. The quay is transformed into a bustling scene, filled with the sights and smells of delicious seafood being prepared, cooked, eaten and sold.

Throughout the day visitors are able to sample freshly prepared seafood from the live cookery demonstrations and watch expert fishmongers at work filleting a wide selection of locally caught fish.
