Fishery Weekend 2017

Traditionally, Nieuwpoort is entirely captivated every Pentecost with fishery. For the urban fish market the 'smoefelmarkt', a unique night market with various vendors from around the region is set up on the entire quay square.

On Saturday and Sunday there are a whole range of activities you can do, such as guided visits of the fish auction, accompanied by a snack and a drink, a 'fish-smoefelmarkt' a shrimp peel competition, and fish sales to the public. Aside of that there are several performances, and there's entertainment for children too.

On Pentecost Monday a celebration of the Eucharist takes place in the urban fish market, followed by blessings of the vessels and a floral tribute to the fisher's monument.
