Event description

Description

Inspired by the famously flavoursome brown crab caught off the South Devon coast, Salcombe Crab Festival – or Crabfest – is an annual celebration of the local fishing, food and tourism industries.

The family friendly festival is organised by the Rotary Club of Salcombe and is sponsored by Coast & Country Cottages, Favis of Salcombe and Salcombe Gin.

Enjoy a full day of events including cookery demos, crab picking masterclasses, crab pot making, live music and much more.

Take a seat in the demonstration kitchen and watch celebrity chefs Matt Tebbutt (BBC's Saturday Kitchen, Channel 4's Food Unwrapped), Jane Devonshire (MasterChef Champion 2016) and Mitch Tonks (award-winning restaurateur, chef and author) show off their skills alongside some of our best local chefs.

Come face to face with a variety of local sea creatures in the Nautique Foundation’s super-sized pool and inspect the catch of the day on a tour of a commercial crabbing vessel. Then dig out your bucket and line for some quayside crab catching of your own – great fun for kids and adults alike!

Or simply spend your day soaking up the atmosphere and checking out the top quality stalls and exhibits selling an unrivalled mix of locally produced food, drink, artisan crafts, clothing, gifts, activities and escapes.

Free entry for all. No tickets required.
