The Tidal Seafood Festival commenced in 1978 when the San Remo Fishing Festival was born, an event to celebrate the village’s fishing heritage and a good excuse to have some fun. Over the years the festival has changed its format, but one thing has stayed the same – it’s a festival made possible by local businesses and volunteers who are proud of their town and their heritage.

Throughout the weekend look out for special dishes at a range of local restaurants and cafés
