Get crabby in Port Angeles

12th annual Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival gets cracking in Port Angeles, Wash, Oct. 11 to 13.

Delicious feasts will be a snap this month, with the 12th annual Dungeness Crab and Seafood Festival gets cracking in Port Angeles, Wash, Oct. 11 to 13.

Though Victorians will have to hop a boat to enjoy the joyously crabby atmosphere, the event has lured thousands of international visitors with locally caught shells, Crab Revival gospel music, Grab-A-Crab Tank Derby and the Crabfest 5-K Fun Run/Walk.

“Crabfest is the annual celebration of our region’s diverse bounty, the seafood, agriculture and maritime traditions, and the breathtaking coastal environment that is home to the Dungeness crab,” says festival producing director Scott Nagel.

Once again, the event will take place downtown at the Port Angeles City Pier, Gateway Center and Red Lion Hotel overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Victoria. More than 80 booths will be featured on the city pier including juried crafts, merchants, nonprofit environmental organizations and festival sponsors.

In addition to the “Crab Central,” 15 regional restaurants will provide visitors with delicious seafood dishes, from crab cakes and fish tacos, to crab enchiladas, crab Rangoon, crab bisque, seafood gumbo, northwest paella, oyster stew, grilled scallops and more.
