Rye Festival of The Sea

Rye Festival of The Sea

Tel: 07974001818



Rye Strand Quay
East Sussex

Born from the long lost and loved festivals of Rye Raft Race & Rye Maritime Festival, we present Rye Festival of the Sea.

This combination of two fantastic events strives to honour the deep maritime history we embrace here in Rye. Proud to be a Cinque Port Town, we welcome locals and visitors from all over to join us in celebrating.

Our festival has been a favourite for locals and visitors for a number of years, with every year adding new and exciting fun to our festival traditions.

This year we have an incredible array of stallholders selling their goodies to visitors and locals - a great way to support smaller businesses!

We also have the return of our Raft Race, where companies, locals, businesses and so much more get involved and battle to the finish line for the legendary title.

And on top of all that, we have our Tug of War, where teams, businesses and locals will test their might to take home the championship!
