Bremerhaven is the largest town on Germany's North Sea coast. It is situated on the margins of the River Weser, and like Grimsby, it is a commercial port with links to the fishing industry.

At the end of July, between Tuesdays 22 to Monday 28 July, North East Lincolnshire Council will be taking the very best of the county’s cuisine to Bremerhaven to show off at its annual Food Festival.  

Would you like to display your food and drink?
Over the five day food festival, North East Lincolnshire Council will be promoting the county to thousands of visitors.

For over 100 years Bremerhaven has enjoyed promoting and exposing some of the finest cuisines and delicacies to visitors from all over the world at the event.

Every year the town attracts thousands of visitors for the Summer Festival. During this time Bremerhaven becomes a 24/7 centre for music, food, dance and beer.

The festival includes a 'Partners in Europe' section where representatives from many of Bremerhaven's twins in Europe [including Grimsby] will take the opportunity to meet and share experiences- not to mention culture and economic information.

Alongside Grimsby, the European partners include Cherbourg, Fredrickshaven, Pori, Scezin and Kalininegrad.

The event will attract Europe's media attention. Coupled with exposure to both Bremerhaven and North East Lincolnshire food guides, magazines, tourism events, telegraphs and journals.

Bremerhaven is a progressive city which has now redeveloped its fish docks to accommodate processing facilities, restaurants, offices and training centres for the fisheries industry.

Why Bremerhaven?
Grimsby's partnership with Bremerhaven was established as far back as 1963, making it one of the oldest twinning arrangements in the country.

Similarly to Grimsby, it has car ferry terminals and an international distribution centre.

Because of its close connections with North East Lincolnshire, one of the main reason for attending is to emphasise and promote Lincolnshire as a quality destination to visit by ferry from Bremerhaven, as well as Lincolnshire’s award winning food and drink.

Any Select Lincolnshire for Food members who wish to send produce to the event will have access to dry freeze facilities, plus a fridge and chiller at the event to keep any produce cool.
