Crustaceans on Tap for Fall in Port Angeles at Washington State’s Largest Crab & Seafood Festival

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

Experience Port Angeles, The Authentic Northwest

Port Angeles has a genuine downtown with a proud heritage. Ties to the past and Native American culture are evident in the murals and names used in the region. Being out on the water is one of the best ways to enjoy the Northwest and for many, the authentic Northwest is best appreciated on The Coho Ferry crossing the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Port Angeles and Victoria, BC, or paddling a kayak on one of the many rivers or bays. Visit and experience for yourself: Port Angeles, The Authentic Northwest
