Welcome to Rye Festival of the Sea!

Born from the loved and long-lost Rye Maritime Festival and the Rye Raft Race, comes Rye Festival of the Sea!

With our annual raft race, tug of war, market and so much more – Rye Festival of the Sea is a summer festival full of maritime fun for locals, visitors and beyond!

We are extremely excited to announce that the Rye Festival Of The Sea is returning Sunday the 11th of September after two years! Please read our full 2022 festival update right here!
