SeaFoodRocks returns big and better in 2018. A fully loaded festival with food, music and live theatrics. SFR2018 will run from July 13th - 15th in Clogherhead, Co. Louth. Following last year's success we are upping the ante and promise an epic weekend!
We are in the same venue as last year but we have made some important changes to ensure ultimate comfort, more amazing stages and props, a new food village; all with improved access for your safety.
There will be a vast selection of free kids rides and entertainment such as train rides, inflatable zone, Celtic Adventures, magicians, puppet shows, face painting, dancing, storytelling, discos, underwater petting zoo, arts and crafts, workshops and much, much more. Kids and parents will not be disappointed.
MUSIC AND LIVE ACTS
Headlining on Sunday night, at part of their Coast to Coast tour, will be The Riptide Movement and we are very excited! We will have a broad selection of local acts that cover a diversity of genres including jazz, pop, rock, folk, traditional and contemporary. A well-known salty wreck will be anchoring up at this year’s main music stage, bringing with it a crew of sailors, floozies and a band of shanty playing pirates. More to follow….
BRAND NEW FOOD VILLAGE – THE OLD FISH MART
SeaFoodRockers will be tasting foods such as crab, lobster, sushi and oysters. Cookery and seafood prep demos, food tastings and education will be a core attraction to the seafood village. The entire food village will be one of the main gathering points, consisting of a broad selection of foods, including the Boyne Valley Food Series tent.
Be part of the action at this year's SeaFoodRocks. Events include The Seafood Challenge, Ur the Star DJ, Dance workshops, yoga laughter, kayaking tours, airsoft shooting ranges and axe throwing will all form part of the hands on activities.
THE SEAFOODROCKS THEATRE
The SeaFoodRocks Family Theatre will contain a stage and large cinema screen where families can watch live shows and acts, as well as, watch scheduled classic family movies. The theatre will be fully kitted out with ushers and usherettes in full costume selling delicacies such as popcorn and peanuts.
Local fishermen will be on hand to add to wow you by building an entire fishing net from scratch using a roll of fishing twine over the duration of the festival. The fishermen will be fully kitted out in their yellow oilskins and boots and will show adults and children how a net is made in its entirety from beginning to end.
BEACH LITTER FESTIVAL ART
Working alongside Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Ireland's Seafood Development Agency, SeaFoodRocks will create awareness of sea pollution by transforming beach and sea litter collected by local schools and fishermen. In the process educating people on the importance of keeping our seas free from rubbish and plastics. This collection of plastics, ropes, nets, etc. will be transformed into large festival art by local participating schools which will be on display over the course of the festival.
