Bridport - the spiritual home of the Tasmanian scallop.
This is according to the coordinator of the Tassie Scallop Fiesta, which returned to the state's North-East on Sunday.
The second annual event was a celebration of all things scallop, serving up scallop kebabs, scallop burgers and, of course, scallop pies.
With more than 2500 attendees, organiser Tony Scott said there were plenty of reasons to celebrate the Tasmanian staple.
"Scallops are a Tasmanian icon dish really," he said.
"They've been a popular dish in Tasmania since the days when they were celebrated from the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
"They've come up the East Coast and most of the beds these days are east of Flinders Island and east of King Island in Bass Strait.
"So it's a celebration for a start. But really it's the hook to celebrate the fact that we have a rich maritime heritage."
Building on the inaugural 2018 event, Sunday's fiesta filled the Bridport foreshore, with crowds and vendors spilling onto the village green.
With highlights including a fashion parade, a scallop pie competition and a sold-out long table lunch hosted by celebrated Tasmanian chef Massimo Mele, Mr Scott said the event continued to get bigger and better.
"We learned a little bit from our experience last year," he said.
"We had the hall and just a little bit on the village green. But we've been able to expand this year, with more stalls and more entertainment.
"The fact that we have this turnout ... it all goes reasonably well for the continued success for an event like this."
For Steven Kaczmarski of Lenah Valley, the fiesta was about one thing - time with friends and the food.
"I came last year and I've had it marked on my calendar ever since," he said.
"You can't go passed the scallop kebabs. They're a real winner."
