The Dungeness Crab Festival is Happening in Port Angeles, Washington

Join the fun at the annual Dungeness Crab Festival (known as CrabFest!) in Port Angeles, Washington — one of the most acclaimed food festivals in the country and in Washington state! The festival celebrates not only the aquaculture, agriculture and maritime traditions of the breathtaking Olympic Peninsula, but brings food, art, music, Native American activities, and children’s events into one spectacular 3-day event for everyone. Located on the gorgeous Port Angeles waterfront next to Olympic National Park and a short ferry ride from sparkling Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the event celebrates the world-famous Dungeness Crab, named after the nearby village of Dungeness, and the bounty of the sea.

Featuring over a dozen local restaurants, cooking demonstrations with celebrity chefs, Chowder Cook-Off, the Grab-a-Crab Derby, a Northwest spirits bar, local wine and craft beer, crafts and merchant vendors, live music, and many more events. Keep up with new announcements at the official Facebook page here. You’ll want to stay where all the action is, so book your room early at the Red Lion Hotel or one of many other hotels and motels in Port Angeles. Rain or shine, this is the crab party of the season and admission is FREE!
