Makers Landing Seafood Fest

Free Entry


The V&A Waterfront is excited to bring you their inaugural V&A Makers Landing Seafood Fest taking place on Saturday, 1 and Sunday, 2 April.

The festival aims to showcase and celebrate all things seafood. Visitors can look forward to a fresh fish market, demo classes, a variety of food vendors, live local music throughout the day and much more.

The V&A Waterfront’s SOLVE, in partnership with Mikateko Media and the Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation will also host a series of panel discussions and demonstrations, delving deeper into how we as foodies, chefs, cooks, and everyday consumers can shift our behaviours to drive for a better, more sustainable future for our oceans and communities.

“Deeply entrenched in our food philosophy at the V&A Waterfront is the need for everyone to have a seat at the table, and to act always in a way that is equitable and sustainable. Our Seafood Fest will therefore also serve as a platform to stimulate a deeper conversation around the provenance of what we put on our plates, the communities, and livelihoods the seafood sector supports, and the impact our fishing and consumption habits have on our oceans,” says Henry Mathys, V&A Waterfront’s Social Impact and Food Ecosystem Head.
