Fishtival Is Coming!

Last year saw the first of what has become an annual event: The NH Fish & Lobster Festival (fondly referred to as “Fishtival”). The number of attendees at the inaugural event blew away all projections, so this year’s organizers are gearing up for an even bigger and better day of celebrating our local fisheries and fisherpeople.

The day’s events will feature the popular seafood tastings (freshly-landed local seafood prepared by Seacoast chefs)  along with games, music and more. Tour a local fishing boat, learn how to identify and prepare local fish, watch an on-location cook-off competition, investigate the Gulf of Maine ecosystem, sing a song, and hear a tale or two.
