Arbroath Sea Fest 2014, which takes place at Arbroath Harbour on August 9 and10, will be even bigger and better this year – if that’s possible!

“After the breathtaking success of last year’s weekend-long event, we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure this year’s two day programme of seaside celebrations is packed full of even more fun, even more live music and even more things to see and do,” said Marco Macari, chair of Arbroath Sea Fest.

Following the March meeting of Arbroath Sea Fest Committee, Marco confirmed that the theme of this year’s Sea Fest will once again be A Weekend At The Seaside. “This theme gave us so much scope and went down very well with the thousands of people who came along,” said Marco.

“However, we have a few surprises planned for this year’s event – and we’re always looking for new ideas. If anyone has any thoughts about activities or events we could include in Sea Fest 2014, please contact our event manager, Eleanor Whitby, by emailing Eleanor@redpepperevents.com.”

Over 25,000 people flocked to Arbroath Sea Fest 2014, ensuring a considerable boost for many local businesses, including eating places, pubs and accommodation providers.

“Sea Fest has well and truly established itself as a super day out for all the family and attracts visitors from far and near,” said Councillor Alex King, who is a member of Arbroath Sea Fest Committee.

“Last year’s record breaking crowds were great news for Arbroath and the surrounding area – and not only because so many people came along and had a great time.

“Many of them used their visit to Sea Fest as an excuse to see more of Arbroath, boosting the local economy and further enhancing our town’s reputation as a must-visit destination.”
