This year’s Open Weekend will feature a feast of new food and drink treats alongside its amazing array of watersports fun, thanks to the addition of Canteen Street Food Festival, from pop-up specialists Rogue Village. It is FREE to attend with a £2 parking charge for those travelling by car.
Scotland’s largest watersports and activity centre, Port Edgar Watersports, is offering 100s of 60-minute on-the-water taster sessions for families. Expert instructors will be showcasing everything from paddleboarding to kayaking.
To avoid disappointment, it’s recommended to pre-book a taster session by contacting Port Edgar Watersports on 0131 319 1820 or by emailing bookings@portedgarwaterspo
New for this year, the marina team has developed its food and drink offering by joining forces with Rogue Village. Renowned for Canteen Street Food Festival at Archerfield Walled Garden in East Lothian, Rogue Village will be cooking up a storm of street food stands, DJs and family-friendly activity for the event, with vendors such as ShrimpWreck, Chick & Pea, Meat Stack, pizzas from Pizza Geeks and The Big Blu, Spice Pots, cocktails from Herringbone, Poco Prosecco, Ferry Brewery and delicious baking from Mimi’s Bakehouse.
This year’s activities on the water will once again feature the thrilling 30-minute Rib rides under the three bridges run by the team from Maid of the Forth, with waterproofs and safety kit provided. The Ribs rides are strictly age 8+, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets available to purchase on the day – it is £5 per child age 8-16 and £10 per adult.
The dry land activities promise to be equally exciting, including loads of kids’ activities – with arts and crafts, science and slime making with Be Experimental, a mobile cave and face painting. There will also be live music from Four Corners DJs.
The weekend also provides the opportunity for some retail therapy at Bosuns Locker, the on-site shop which offers everything from country clothing and all manner of boating accessories right up to new and used boats. There will be a 20% discount on selected clothing and accessories during the Open Weekend from brands including Joules, Schoffel and Fairfax & Favor.
