Rye Bay Scallop Week Festival 2021

So the dates of 20th - 28th Feb for 2021's fabulous Rye Bay Scallop Festival has been annouced - a week dedicated to scallops and the huge amount of ways we are able to enjoy them.

Scallops have long been fished for in Rye Bay, with the generations of fishermen taking care to stick to the fishing guidelines and ensuring all the smaller scallps are left in the water to continue the future supply. You will find nothing more fresh than these scallops pulled straight from the local bay and delivered straight to your plate in the nearby restaurants.

The locals enjoy creating beautiful dishes, every year we see more and more clever creations and recipes! There is no rules when putting together the dishes, and there is most certainly something for everyone. Not only are the scallops served - the towns talented chefs also enjoy cookery demonstrations and tasting sessions throughout the week.

Along with all the restaurants who love to get creative is the local musicians who love to entertain the visitors to the ancient town. Many pubs and bars have live bands playing and special celebrity guests which gives that extra touch to already a fabulous festival week!

If you would like to come and enjoy this amazing week please see our selection of Rye properties which are all in the heart of the action. We also have some properties a short drive out in Camber Sands if you prefer perhaps a beach stay, which is around a 5 minute drive.
