The Vision

Coastal Community Celebration

The Vision of Sidmouth Sea Fest is the staging of an annual event that will celebrate the opportunities afforded on, in and from the sea.

Sidmouth Sea Fest aims to celebrate and advocate the vibrant coastal community of Sidmouth and encourage a spirit of shared place.

We invite local clubs, enterprises, schools and the public to an annual event that showcases the activities, heritage and education connected to the sea and coast that Sidmouth offers to local people and visitors.

Through this, we aim to preserve, encourage and advocate;

  • Community cohesion, participation and inclusion
  • Education & Heritage
  • Maritime & Fisheries
  • Employment, Training & Apprenticeships
  • The Arts
  • Responsible Tourism
  • Sustainability and the Environment
Who runs it


Sidmouth Sea Fest is run completely by volunteers and any assets go towards subsequent event planning for following years.  

Our thanks go to the many friends, family and community volunteers who help us.

Since we started in 2014 we have been supported through various grants and donations. 

We are grateful to all our funders & sponsors…
