And we have received national recognition:
Coastal Living magazine has named the Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival as one of the top 10 Fabulous Fall Festivals on the Coast. click
The Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival has been selected as one of the “Top 100 Events in North America” by the American Bus Association
The Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival is the annual celebration of the region's diverse bounty - the seafood, the maritime and cultural traditions and the breathtaking coastal environment. The festival's featured crustacean, the Dungeness Crab, was named after the village of Dungeness (near Port Angeles), Washington . The Festival is located at the Port Angeles City Pier and the Red Lion Hotel overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca, with Victoria , B.C. just a ferry ride away.
