The Annual Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival – October 6-8, 2017
On the banks of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in downtown Port Angeles, thousands of pounds of crab are caught and served up at this annual festival, named one of the most acclaimed seafood festivals in North America. Last year, attendees noshed on over 14,000 pounds of fresh Dungeness crab. You can also fill your plate with a variety of fresh-from-the-sea seafood options ranging from oysters and mussels to clam chowder and even geoduck sashimi, a hard-to-find delicacy.
“The Port Angeles Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival is different from other Pacific Northwest crab and seafood festivals.” says Scott Nagel, executive director of the Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival, “The crab is caught and served as fresh as possible.”
All of the Dungeness crab for our event is caught by local fishermen in traditional fishing grounds on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Dungeness Bay, and at nearby Discovery Bay, home of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. Crab dinners can be purchased at the festival or in advance on the website.
In addition to filling your belly with seafood, enjoy a host of events focused around culinary arts and family fun. Celebrity chef Shaun O’Neale, the winner of FOX TV’s MasterChef Season 7 will make an appearance along with several other notable chefs to cook up Olympic Coast Cuisine using fresh, local ingredients.
To beat the crab-hungry crowds, plan on arriving on Thursday evening and dig in on Friday starting at noon. Not only will you have a bit more elbow room, but you will also save a little on hotel room rates and crab dinner tickets. Sunday is also a good day to attend with less people and a full day of culinary experiences from 9 A.M. until 5 P.M. And don’t worry, they never ever run out of crab! Continue reading

Though her interest in baking took hold when she was a girl, it wasn’t until 2005 that Kate McDermott decided to get serious about pie making. For two years she studied pie crust, experimenting with different flours, fats, ratios and recipes until she hit upon the right combination for her signature Art of the Pie crust.
McDermott has been featured throughout the years in publications ranging from The New York Times to the Los Angeles Times, and from O Magazine to Food and Wine to USA Today, as well as in blogs and on TV and radio.
Her new cookbook, “Art of the Pie: A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Fillings, and Life,” was nominated for a 2017 James Beard Award in Baking and Desserts.
Read the full article and be sure to join Kate when she takes to the CrabFest cooking demo stage to share her talents and talk more about her great book (available to autograph and purchase!)
