Mosseldag or Day of the Mussels is an annual event in the Dutch town of Yerseke. The event takes place on the third Saturday of August.[1]

Annually, around 50,000 people[2] visit the event. They come from the close region, but also from Belgium, Germany and France. Mosseldag is known for eating mussels, a local delicacy, and other seafood. You can go freely on a trip over the Eastern Scheldt with a mussel fishing boat (or watch the fleet go by), walk along the fair and watch the tattoo and fireworks in the evening.[3]
