Following on from the incredible success of the inaugural Festival in 2017, we approached 2018 event with a confidence and determination to create something even bigger and better.
Celebrity Chef Nick Nairn headlined our Kitchen Marquee, with entertaining cookery demonstrations, including some oyster dishes.
Sam Sam Bubbleman was a huge hit in the children's marquee over the weekend. Just one of many incredible attractions on our programme for kids!
Our Seafood Celebration Marquee was generously supported by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and the Scottish Government. We curated a selection of delicious seafood themed stalls offering a wide array of local seafood served in imaginative and inspiring ways.
The Dangleberries, a lively band who plays popular music with a Scottish twist, headlined The Big Oyster Bash. An enjoyable evening was had with dancing, late bar, buffet and of course Loch Ryan Oysters!
