Professional Fisher’s Association (PFA) proudly present the inaugural Taste of Seafood Hawkesbury River festival, Sunday, March 8th 2020 at the Wisemans Ferry Recreation Reserve.
This unique Taste of Seafood festival will celebrate the Hawkesbury River region and its wonderful seafood industry. Gates open 10 am and the festival is set to attract locals and tourists alike with informative industry displays, cooking demonstrations, barrel race, prawn peeling competitions, live music and stalls.
Festival-goers can also view the local fishing fleet, berthed along the riverbank adjacent to the reserve. It promises to be a fun day for the whole family with a jumping castle, magnetic fishing, colouring competitions and face painting for the kids.
Tricia Beatty, Professional Fisher’s Association CEO said, “Taste of Seafood will raise awareness about local professional fishers and provide an opportunity for festival-goers to see, feel and taste locally harvested wild-caught seafood whilst interacting with members of the industry.”
“It’s an opportunity to educate the general public on the environmental sustainability of the NSW seafood industry, they will learn how it is caught, where it is stored and where they can purchase it,” explained Gary Howard, PFA Chairman and Hawkesbury River professional fisherman.
The event is now sponsored by OceanWatch Australia and the Department of Primary Industries.
PFA is a not for profit organisation. Event organisers would like to involve the community and are accepting stall holders and sponsor applications.
