Sandgate Sea and Food Festival 

The annual Sandgate Sea & Food Festival is back again this year for a fun family filled weekend.


The event that hosts a weekend of laughter, fun and excitement for the whole family will open with 

plenty of “OOOhh’s” and “Aaahh’s” from 7.30pm with a spectacular firework display, coupled with the lighting of the Sandgate Festival beacon to announce the start of the yearly festival. Sandgate’s  95th Rifles will also be in attendance.


Sunday starts at noon and promises to be a really busy day with numerous stalls catering for all ages, stilt walkers, Folkestone Party Mascots, circus workshops, live music and much more. There is also a Punch and Judy Show on the beach. 


Jam packed with plenty of different activities, there are plenty of food options and local businesses will also have stalls for the public to browse. There will also be a variety of live music over the weekend.


Head inland from Sandgate beach, with an Arts and Craft Fair in the Chichester Memorial Hall from 11am to 4pm.
