Milford Fish Festival is back for 2019 and the free event will take place on Saturday 22nd June from 10am to 8pm in a new location on Mackerel Quay with a variety of activities on offer.

Pure West Radio will be entertaining visitors with live music acts on stage and there will be walkabout entertainers throughout the day. There will also be activities for children, with cookery classes and craft workshops as well as face painting, miniature ponies and an interactive fishing pool.

The ‘Fish Kitchen’ will have seafood cookery demonstrations from local chefs as well as coastal foraging demonstrations from Craig Evans, and the Milford Chowder Trail will also be making a return for this year’s event. Visitors can help decide which of the participating businesses at Milford Waterfront will be crowned ‘Milford Chowder Champion 2019’ by picking up a score sheet and commemorative bowl on the day for £5 and putting the recipes to the taste test.

Streetfood Warehouse has confirmed street food stalls, including Swshi, Assembelly, The Pod, Choc Shop and the Streetfood Warehouse Bar. There will be a selection of stalls selling local produce and crafts and opportunities to get on the water with taster boat trips from Discover Coast and Cleddau and canoeing from Paddle West.

Natalie Hunt, Events and Activities Co-ordinator for Milford Waterfront, commented:

“We’re really excited to be bringing Milford Fish Festival back this year. The launch event of Pembrokeshire Fish Week is part of the heart and soul of Milford Haven. We’re putting lots of effort and passion into this event, and we’ll have plenty to shout about in the run up to it, so be sure to keep an eye out on our social media channels and ‘What’s On’ page on our website!”

Milford Fish Festival is the launch event of Pembrokeshire Fish Week which is run by Pembrokeshire County Council and takes place this year from 22nd to 30th June.

The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas. It is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK.

The Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire, attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs.

The Port of Milford Haven also owns and operates Pembroke Port and Milford Dock. Activities such as cargo handling, ferry operations, fish landing and cruise calls as well as a first class marina are spread across these two sites.

One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain. It is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and has many areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The Port of Milford Haven is a trust port – an independent, commercially run organisation that has statutory responsibilities governed by its Acts, to maintain and improve navigation and the provision of Port and Harbour services and facilities. Additionally, the Port provides significant financial and in-kind support to a wide variety of local causes. All profits are retained within the business to fund these objectives.
