South Devon Crab Festival

South Devon Crab Festival
Monday 1st August 2011 to Saturday 6th August 2011

1st – 6th August – South Devon Crab Festival

Where else but in South Devon would you find a week-long festival dedicated to crabs and all things crabby? The South Devon Crab Festival is held all over South Devon at various locations and includes events, tasting, demonstrations, crabbing competitions and a range of beach events to enjoy.

Celebrating a West Country industry - There are many distinct events in South Devon that reflect its diverse and colourful identity, and of these the South Devon Crab Festival celebrates a traditional West Country industry with all the gusto and passion that we like to throw into all our festivities. From teaching people how to crab to tasting the excellent range of dishes involving crab, we love to celebrate our maritime bounty in style. The South Devon Crab Festival is putting this crustacean back on the culinary map.

Dartmouth is the perfect place to try your hand at crabbing - all you need is a bucket, a line and some bait!
