The Menai Seafood Festival, now in its third year, is fast becoming a signature event in the Anglesey food calendar. This year is no exception as it teams up for the first time with Anglesey Marine Week (17-23rd August) to champion and celebrate the very best of local seafood, marine conservation and north Wales’ coastal heritage.
This free festival takes place in Menai Bridge, Anglesey, on Saturday 22nd August and brings together local fishermen, farmers, producers, restaurants and hotels to display the amazing variety of seafood and other produce sourced from the area. Over 80% of all food exhibited at this year’s Festival will be produced locally. There will also be a fish auction at the end of the day allowing visitors an opportunity to bid for their seafood supper.
There will also be a range of cookery demonstrations with art and craft, music and children’s activities. Other attractions include the AquaRoots Flat-Pack Fish on display on the Prince’s Pier. The innovation is an exciting, accessible and engaging learning resource for children of primary age that makes use of an integrated growing technique called aquaponics – a method of growth of both fish and plants in a single, closed system.
