For the record, Dieppe is the oldest. She is now in its 46th edition and is the most followed of all. More than 100,000 people come each year to attend this great event. Here more than elsewhere, herring has held a prominent place. Until the 1970s, the one here is nicknamed “king fish” has been the engine of the local economy. “Eat herring, you will have beautiful children,” proclaim some ‘crowd harengeurs “! Grilled, marinated with a little lemon and a glass of white wine, herring is eaten with all sauces! The Saint-Jacques shell is associated with this event since Dieppe is the first French port on the matter.
