Get Crabby and Winey

Celebrating 29 years, the Astoria-Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival will offer its annual spread of Northwest bounty April 29–May 1.

Guests can sample local cuisine, peruse arts and crafts, and taste a selection of Oregon and Washington wine as well as an assortment of microbrews. The Rotary Club of Astoria will be serving its traditional crab dinner in the exhibit hall, where live music plays all weekend.

Hours and ticket prices for the festival vary by day — Friday: 4 to 9 p.m. ($8 admission); Saturday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ($10); and Sunday: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ($5). A weekend pass may be purchased for $18 on Friday at the Festival or at the Astoria Warrenton Chamber of Commerce during the month of April. Children younger than 12 years are free all weekend.

The Festival is held at the Clatsop County Fairgrounds, 92937 Walluski Loop, Astoria.
