The 2017 Sea Ilfracombe Maritime Festival is an annual celebration of Ilfracombe's unique character and coastal life!
The AONB will be having a stand at this event - Please come and see us.
The main festival hub is based in Ropery Road car park, spreading down to the harbour and beyond to many of the pubs, eateries, galleries and venues all around the seafront. Centre stage is the music - a packed programme of local and national bands from traditional Shanty songs to SKA and rock 'n roll surrounded by sizzling seaside kitchen with stalls offering seafood and local produce; sweet & savoury and a seafood preparation and cooking master class.
There's plenty of family fun with street entertainers and a hive of harbour activities including sailing lessons with Y-Sail (Yacht Club), historic lifeboat trips on Hampshire Rose, fishing from the pier with Combe Martin Sea Angling Club and a crabbing competition (with prizes!) Entry is free and this year's festival kicks off on Friday 1st September through to the Sunday evening.
