Festivities at the harbour

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!
