Johnshaven Fish Festival 2019. Set on the picturesque coastal plains of the Mearns just 7 miles north of Montrose just off the A92, the remarkable and charming fishing village of Johnshaven. Every year Johnshaven hosts the nationally acclaimed Fish Festival. Last year’s event was attended by over 6000 visitors from around the globe! The proceeds of the event have enabled The Johnshaven Fish Festival to make donations to some very worthy local causes such as the “Montrose Lifeboat” in recognition of the part they play in saving lives at sea.

All profits from the Fish Festival are gifted back into the community benefit various local organisations.

Sponsorships, donations and income from trade stalls provides the finance required to cover the significant running costs of the festival. Past corporate sponsors have included Audi who exhibited a fleet of vehicles from their exciting range on the pier; and Petrofac Training used the festival to launch a safety programme, to name but two. The 6000 plus strong audience offers a very lucrative opportunity for any company wishing to gain exposure to this niche market.JOHNSHAVEN FISH FESTIVAL

The Johnshaven Fish Festival offers a day out for everyone that is second to none.

You can expect a lively day of celebration including, live music held on two outside stages featuring sounds from Scotland’s best. A pipe band will perform on the streets every hour and Scottish dancers are sure to keep the crowd enthralled with their lively show held along the dockside.

Year on year our audience and legacy has grown. It could not have achieved such acumen without the support of the sponsors. Since its small beginnings, the event has become a part of the local tourist calendar and a vital contributor to the village economy.

Alongside the customary array of fish stalls, crafts, and local fare the festival offers a day out in a relaxed and informal manner packed with fun and entertainment. The audience is made up of many different market sectors and can offer your company exposure and kudos whether it be through marketing awareness, branding, or corporate responsibility.

This is indeed a worthy cause that supports the local community and offers a great day out for all who attend.
