Rye Scallop Festival

Rye Bay Scallop Week is scheduled for 18th February – 26th February 2023.

A perfect opportunity to indulge in seafood delights! Rye restaurants will be showcasing an array of different scallop dishes.

There will also be Scallop events including tasting events, cookery schools and demonstrations, live music, and more!

Scallops have long been fished in the waters of Rye Bay with local fishermen harvesting their scallop catch from the 1st of November until the 30th of April. Rye scallops can only be caught by registered Rye boats (under 10 metres).

The Scallop beds are checked regularly and allowed to regenerate when necessary. There are also size restrictions on the catch, leaving the smaller scallops in the water for future years.

Checks undertaken by both DEFRA and the local fishermen ensure that stocks are healthy and sustainably maintained.

So if you like seafood great, even if you don't but would like a relaxed weekend away now is a good time to book Kingshoath. No doubt there will be some good live music going on too in Rye / local area.
