During the extended Ascension weekend (Thursday 26th May to Sunday 29th May), the harbour goes back in time during the atmospheric Festivities at the harbour.
This unique four-day event, during which a wide range of maritime activities are organised, allows countless curious visitors to discover what life was like for fishermen at the time.
The North Sea Folk & Shantyfestival takes place on Friday 27 May and Saturday 28 May: an international festival of maritime music with authentic fishermen's songs.
On Sunday, the famous fishermen's parade travels through the town.
There are demonstrations of old fishing crafts, fish tasting, folk dances, a meeting of giants, rescue demonstrations, etc.
A must-see activity will be Sail, a meeting of classic boats. The public will be able to admire the sailing ships up close! For four days, there is also a large flea market.
The atmosphere is guaranteed!
