NEWQUAY FISH FESTIVAL
Newquay has a centuries old association with fish and the annual Fish Festival in early September attracts more than 20,000 visitors to celebrate this connection with the sea. There are three days packed with entertainment and the chance to sample and buy local produce. There are cooking demonstrations every day – including one from Fifteen Cornwall head chef Adam Banks – which will all promote the variety of fish and shellfish on offer off the Cornish coast. Local hotels and restaurants get behind the festival to promote local seafood and produce. In the food, craft and arts tents you can sample everything from traditional pasties and Cornish cakes to curry, crepes and chocolate fountains.
