What is Herring’s Weekend in Marstrand?
Herring Weekend in Marstrand is another event to draw attention to herring and Marstrand’s importance as a historical center for the trade in the Bohuslän herring and to celebrate Swedish food traditions. According to tradition, all of Marstrand’s skilled chefs compete to see who makes the best herring filling. Visitors then taste all the fantastic herring fillings and vote for the one they think is the tastiest. This competition is called the Herring Race. At Sillens Helg, other taste tests are also arranged with some of Sweden’s top gourmet chefs on the jury.
