Otherwise known as the Fishtival, this brand new event is a special collaboration between a variety of community organizations to support the local fishing industy.

Visit the New Hampshire Surfrider Foundation tent to meet us and find out what we do to help protect the oceans, waves and beaches along the New Hampshire coast.

This fun-filled event will feature seafood tasting, games, music and more.

Walk the decks of a local fishing boat, taste freshly-landed local seafood prepared by Seacoast chefs, learn to identify and prepare local fish, watch an on-location cook-off competition between chefs, investigate the Gulf of Maine ecosystem, sing a song and hear a tale or two.

This first-ever interactive festival celebrates 18 miles and 400 years of NH fishing communities and traditions.

13 chefs and restaurants will serve up fresh and delicious seafood tastings. For more information visit Fishtival 2009
