October 11, 12, & 13, 2013
The Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival is the annual celebration of the region's diverse bounty - the seafood, the maritime and cultural traditions and the breathtaking coastal environment. The festival's featured crustacean, the Dungeness Crab, was named after the village of Dungeness (between Sequim and Port Angeles), Washington. The Festival is located at the Port Angeles City Pier overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Eight of the finest local restaurants compliment the crab feed with more than 25 seafood dishes and great desserts. New this year Taylor Shellfish raw bar! Enjoy fantastic oysters with Northwest micro-brews and wine from the Olympic Peninsula wineries.
