Get crabbing and join in the Grab a Crab Tank Derby, sponsored by Hightide Seafood and Wilder Auto, Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-4pm! Located on the Port Angeles Pier, participate in this unorthodox derby by crabbing from large holding tanks using crab snares and bait. Festival volunteers will be on hand to show you how to catch, cook and clean the famous crustaceans. Catch a tagged crab and you could win a prize. You can purchase the crabs to take home cooked or uncooked! Also on the pier are more than 75 crafts and merchants booths, more food, and children’s activities.
