Become a Crab Buddy

The Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival,  is the annual celebration of the North Olympic Peninsula’s diverse bounty. Celebrate our featured crustacean, the world-famous Dungeness crab, with more than 20,000 visitors from around the world.
Your business can participate in the major tourism event in Port Angeles by becoming a Crab Buddy! (Additional sponsorship packages are available; please contact us for more information)
Crabfest has become one of the region’s most significant tourism events with an estimated 12,000 people visiting from around the world and a measured economic impact of more than $1,500,000 (2006 study).  And as a fall festival the economic impact is especially important.
This is also a local event, providing free family fun during the fall season with the unique “Grab-A-Crab Derby” and other programs make the festival a delight for families as well.
To show appreciation for the many members of the community that make the Festival possible, we offer the Friday Night Community Crab Feed!  This event provides the local community, businesses, and organizations a chance to come out and enjoy the festival’s old fashioned crab feed at a pre-festival price.  As a Crab Buddy, your company will be a host to the Community Crab Feed on Friday night.
