Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival

Port Angeles, Washington, October 11-13, 2013

The Dungeness crab season may have drawn to a close at the end of summer, but that doesn't stop this festival on the Washington shore from hosting its very own Grab a Crab Tank Derby. Volunteers are on hand to assist in catching, cleaning, and cooking the crabs, and everyone who catches one is eligible to win a prize. In addition to this unorthodox sporting event, festival goers enjoy an old-fashioned crab feed, fresh seafood, and cooking demonstrations. Fresh Northwestern seafood abounds, as well as products and treats brought by retailers from all over the Olympic Peninsula.

Admission is free; 360/452-6300 or crabfestival.org.
