A Spectacular Seaside Festival 60 of the Seacoast's top restaurants Continuous Entertainment and so much more!
The Hampton Beach Seafood Festival has evolved dramatically, and has been acclaimed as "One of the Top 100 Events in North America", by the American Bus Association in 1996, 2001, 2003, 2006 and 2007. Event attendance is now estimated as exceeding 150,000!
The Seafood Festival is a win-win situation for everyone involved; our business people, the community, the town, the State of New Hampshire and for Tourism in general. But most of all, it is a fun-filled weekend in which all of our business colleagues, the community, 500 volunteers, and our friends pull together to put on a World Class Event!
