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.
Gates open 10am and the festival is set to attract locals and tourists alike with informative industry displays, cooking demonstrations, barrel race, prawn peeling competition, 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.
