New! Port Angeles Likes Bikes Corral

Ride your bike to the Festival and park it at the new bike corral sponsored by Port Angeles Likes Bikes(PALB).  From 12:30pm-6pm on Friday, 10 am-6pm on Saturday and from 10am-5pm on Sunday, PALB volunteers will secure your bike in our new portable bike racks provided by the City of Port Angeles and Crabfest.

The bike corral is located just inside the Gateway Center(Front and Railroad Streets) near the cooking demonstration stage.    PALB volunteers will give you half of a numbered ticket.  The other half is taped to your bike.  When you wish to pick up your bike, volunteers will match your half of the ticket with your bike’s half.  EASY!!!!  Please note:  no other personal items can be checked with your bicycle.

The Olympic Discovery Trail runs right through the Crabfest site on the Port Angeles waterfront – what a great day trip!  You also can connect with Clallam Transit buses on Friday and Saturday.  No bus service is available on Sundays.
