Sidmouth Sea Fest is a free family day out for local residents and visitors alike and will take place at the Ham, Sidmouth on Saturday 18th May 10am to 10.30pm. 

Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub Director, Louise Cole, said: “Sea Fest is a wonderful event that celebrates community, fun, and environmental stewardship. Our commitment to keeping the event free and accessible is a key aim, especially in challenging times. A great opportunity for everyone to come together and enjoy the natural beauty of the coast. It’s a fantastic event for all who attend, made so by the many local groups who are involved, sharing what they do on the day to people of all ages. It’s an amazing Sidmouth showcase.”

A town-wide celebration – Sidmouth businesses, shops, cafés and restaurants are encouraged to get into the Sea Fest spirit and dress their windows or put a special dish of the day on their menu to share the Seas The Day! message creatively. Organisers are currently seeking sponsors to help keep this non-commercial event free for everyone.  Please contact for a sponsorship pack.
