Schrimp Festival

The Shrimp Festival in Oostduinkerke is a unique and traditional celebration that takes place annually on the Belgian coast. This distinctive festival honors the centuries-old tradition of shrimp fishing, where fishermen on horseback enter the sea to catch shrimp. This fishing method is so special that it has been recognized by UNESCO as intangible cultural heritage.
