To celebrate the best of Ireland’s sea, food and culture SeaFood Rocks is launching its sumptuous seafood festival from 13th – 15th July in Clogherhead, Co.Louth with an exciting jam packed weekend of music, movies, competitions, comedy and more.
At the food village there will be plenty of seafood demos and cookery workshops by guest chefs. At this artisan seafood market locals will compete in the Best Chowder in Louth competition and indulge in the vast amount of delicious fresh seafood delights to enjoy.
A fun Seafood Challenge will be hosted by Father Ted star and comedian Joe Rooney and is sure to be an exciting event full of laughs.
The event is family friendly and promises to be a fantastic day out. The kids can take part in an old school sports day – reminiscent of your school days, as well as axe throwing and water zorbing.
Ireland has an abundance of oceans with fabulous fresh fish, therefore the major aim of the festival to promote seafood as a more regular food source.
Music at the event will feature some of Ireland’s best musicians such as headline act The Riptide Movement. Keep the kids entertained at the outdoor cinema showing the hit film Moana.
The festival will be supporting the sustainability movement by reducing the amount of plastic waste at the event and using predominantly biodegradable materials.
In an effort to highlight the issue of waste on our beaches an art installation will be created by UK artist Jig and Charles Preston of Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog.
The art piece will be an impressive 7m high octopus made completely from waste gathered locally on beaches in Louth and Meath as well the communities school green bins and old fishing nets.
