Inspired by the famously flavoursome brown crab caught off the South Devon coast, Salcombe Crab Festival or Crabfest is an annual celebration of the local fishing, food and tourism industries.
Crabfest takes place on Sunday 5th May 2019 in and around Island Street and across the town. It is organised by the Rotary Club of Salcombe and is sponsored by Coast & Country Cottages, Crew Clothing and Salcombe Gin.
Enjoy a full day of events including cookery demos, crab picking masterclasses, crab pot making, live music and much more.
Take a seat in the demonstration kitchen and watch celebrity chefs show off their skills alongside some of our best local chefs.
Or simply spend your day soaking up the atmosphere and checking out the top quality stalls and exhibits selling an unrivalled mix of locally produced food, drink, artisan crafts, clothing, gifts, activities and escapes.
