Wynnum Manly Seafood Festival 2020
An area so filled with seafood, they’ve made a festival out of it.
We've known for a while that the Wynnum-Manly area is brimming with the ocean's finest bounty. In fact, we've even suggested going on a fish and chip crawl there. Who doesn't want to mosey between coastal greasy spoons and eat seafood by the seashore at every one of them?
Well, the fine folks in the city's east have gone one better: they've made a whole day of fun out of the bayside's fondness for bugs, crabs, prawns, oysters, scallops and plenty of kinds of fish. That'd be the Wynnum Manly Seafood Festival, a community seafood event that'll take over George Clayton Park overlooking the iconic Wynnum jetty on Monday, May 4. Previous fests have attracted more than 15,000 people, so attendees could have a heap of fish-loving company.
This time around, there'll be seafood stalls, a licensed bar, live music and activities for kids. And eating. So much eating. Arrive hungry and hankering for an ocean-fuelled feast, obviously — with everything from seafood curry, deep-fried seafood and seafood pizza to seafood dumplings, seafood crepes and seafood tacos on the menu.
