Marine Fest 2021

31 May - 13 June 2021

Explore the wonders of Scotland’s marine environment at our first ever Marine Fest!

In 2021, Scotland continues to celebrate its coasts and waters with a programme of activities and events which will shine a spotlight on these vital elements of our landscape. As part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 2021, Marine Fest is a celebration of Scotland’s amazing coastal habitats and wildlife.

With our exciting partners we're hosting a series of outdoor and on-line events between 31 May and 13 June 2021.

Our stunning coastal location, overlooking the Firth of Forth islands, gives us unparalleled access to the sea, coast and beaches. The surrounding waters and islands are of international importance for their habitats and wildlife, including the world’s largest Northern gannet colony (Bass Rock). Marine Fest will make full use of this stunning setting, including a mile of golden sand and rockpools full of fascinating wildlife. Outdoor events will be supplemented by digital events which will be accessible to those unable to physically visit the Centre.
