Salcombe Crabfest


Promising a day of cracking crab fun, Salcombe Crabfest is taking place on 2nd May 2021. Now in its fifth year, this action-packed charity event celebrates Salcombe's exceptional fishing and tourism industries, with an atmospheric mix of demonstrations from locally and nationally acclaimed chefs, tempting street stalls, culinary competitions and live music.

This one-day event is free to attend and is organised by The Rotary Club of Salcombe in South Devon. Designed to not only showcase Salcombe's world famous brown crab, the day also raises proceeds for local charities. To date, donations from Crabfest events now total over £40,000 cumulatively, directly benefitting organisations within the community, including local cancer support charity The Triangle Centre and Devon Air Ambulance.

This year's highlights are set to include a multitude of family friendly activities and entertainment for all ages. Pop along to the Chef Demo Tent in the Creek Car Park and watch demonstrations from locally and nationally acclaimed chefs - there is even the opportunity to taste the dishes they have created before your eyes!

Stroll along Island Street, which for one day only becomes a pedestrianised market, lined with street stalls selling gifts, souvenirs and foodie delights. Catch one of the crab picking masterclasses and learn new skills, before buying a whole crab to take home. Or why not simply sit back and relax on the quayside, sampling some fantastic local food and drink whilst listening to superb live music. The children are well catered for too - there are free activities, competitions and so much more... a recipe for a fun family day out.

With so many cracking reasons to visit the 2021 Salcombe Crabfest, make it a date in your diary now! For more information visit
