Westgate-on-Sea Food & Drink Festival

Event Date(s)

29/08/2020 - 31/08/2020 - 3 day(s)

Information For Trader/Participants

UPDATE - Following recent conversation with the Town Council this event has been postponed - the NEW DATE is Saturday 29th - Monday 31st August.

The latest venue to be added to our south coast food and drink festival calendar and what a great addition it is. Westgate on Sea ticks all the boxes providing a stunning coastline backdrop, a strong community spirit and a reputation that attracts tourists, second home owners and those looking to relocate as a lifestyle choice, a phenomenon that is breathing new life into Kent's coastal towns.

Our event will be located on the cliff top overlooking the River Thames estuary and out to the North sea. You will not be disappointed with the view, nor we feel, with the trading that this festival will deliver.

Interesting Facts About The Venue

Westgate-on-Sea is located in northeast Kent, in the district of Thanet, on the coast of the Thames Estuary. It is bordered by the town of Margate to the east and the village of Birchington-on-Sea to the west. The town is built beside the two sandy bays of St Mildred's Bay and West Bay, which both have a sea wall and groynes to prevent coastal flooding. Chalk cliffs are present in between the bays and either side of the bays. The whole of the northeast Kent coast has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

During the late 1860s, businessmen developed the area into a seaside resort for the upper to middle-classes. A stretch of sea wall, with promenade on top, was constructed around the beaches at St Mildred's Bay and West Bay, and the land divided into plots to be sold for what would become an exclusive development by the sea for wealthy metropolitan families within a gated community, rather than for occasional tourists
