Fremantle Seafood festival and boat show postponed

Uncertainty over COVID spread and management has seen event organisers postpone the upcoming Fremantle Seafood Festival and Fremantle Boat Show, with the event now scheduled for March 2023.

Show Director Peter Woods said the City of Fremantle supported the decision to postpone the event due to the current covid situation in Perth and the uncertainty surrounding the virus spread.

“We recognise that postponing this event is a disappointment for a lot of people, however we do feel that the right decision has been made in this instance in order to keep the community safe,” Peter said.

“There is too much uncertainty now surrounding Covid, and particularly when it comes to hosting big events.

“While we have the capability to manage the event to follow covid-safe guidelines, it would be irresponsible to introduce a major new event at the current time.”

The Fremantle Seafood Festival and Fremantle Boat Show will be scheduled for 10-12 March 2023 at Fremantle Esplanade and Fishing Boat Harbour.
