Hervey Bay Seafood Festival

Written by Fraser Coast Tourism & Events

If a day full of soulful blues and bubbly jazz performances, crisp craft beers, unique regional wines and the finest arrangement of fresh Australian seafood sounds like a Saturday well-spent to you, then does the Fraser Coast have a treat for you!

The highly anticipated Hervey Bay Seafood Festival returns to Seafront Oval in Hervey Bay on Saturday, 13th August for a full day of enjoyment with gates opening from 10am–5pm.

Packed with an array of mouth-watering fresh seafood from Australian providers, a selection of the best regional breweries, distilleries and wineries and a star-studded line-up of live entertainment that will have you dancing and singing all day, the Hervey Bay Seafood Festival 2022 is a must on this year’s event calendar.

Whilst you graze your way across the various seafood options, visit the Boat Harbour Fisheries marquee to get your hands on succulent shell-on prawns and other tasty morsels. Taste the difference with freshly shucked oysters available from the team at Odyssey Bistro.

Your entertainment options include the likes of punchy Brisbane group ‘August River Band.’ A five-piece instrumental, the band brings together a juxtaposed fusion of genre bending sounds, so unique you must see it to believe it!

Along with Rosa Mack, the perfect mix of Etta James meets Amy Winehouse meets Alabama Shakes; the Slips & The F.W’s are returning to Seafront Oval with their New Orleans style jazz, blues, swing and ragtime band; and the Pacific Belles with their 1940’s inspired singing trio will be roaming the festival, ready to entertain you from your seat.
