Fisherman’s Fest

The brilliance of the Bahamas is hard to deny. There’s something about the combination of endless white sand beaches, endless sunshine and emerald foliage that makes this collection of islands irresistible to travelers from near and far. Vibrant culture, amazing dining and plenty of opportunities to soak up incredible views have long defined this archipelago of more than 700 islands, all with a rich maritime past. Those travelers who make their way to North Eleuthera in July will be thrilled to find that this portion of the Bahamas is teeming with excitement as residents and visitors come together to celebrate Fisherman’s Fest. This annual Fish fest is time set aside to enjoy each other’s company while celebrating the fishing tradition that has given the people of the Bahamas sustenance, profit and an unbreakable connection to the water that surrounds them.

A Day Dedicated to Fishing

In 2019, Fisherman’s Fest will be in full swing July 19th through the early morning hours of July 20th. Beginning at 7:00 pm, participants can make their way to Spanish Wells in North Eleuthera where the fun will continue until midnight. Fisherman’s Fest is a dedicated effort to spotlight the cultural and economic importance of fishing in Spanish Wells and is a great opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in Bahamian culture, if only for the day. Live entertainment, games and plenty of craft stands fill the area during this festival for guests to channel their artistic side and try something new, all to the beat of an amazing live background soundtrack. Food vendors dot the area as well, filling the air with an incredible combination of aromas as traditional favorites are served up in island style. Guests can enjoy everything from conch and rice to lobster and local fried fish when cravings hit. No matter how you choose to indulge, be sure to save room for some mouthwatering dessert. You won’t have to look far to find coconut pie or guava duff ready to tantalize the taste buds. It’s definitely one of the best fishing in the Bahamas experience!

Fishing for All

Fisherman’s Fest wouldn’t be complete without several fishing tournaments that give guests and locals the chance to get out on the waves and reel in something spectacular. To celebrate in style, Fisherman’s Fest ends with an impressive fireworks display, reminding participants to return the following year when the celebration starts once again.
