Oregon’s north coast celebrates food and fun at the Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival, sponsored by Fred Meyer.
The Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood and Wine Festival, sponsored by Fred Meyer, is back this April 28th to 30th, at the Clatsop County Fair & Expo Center. The Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce coordinates this event which, held annually since 1982, features around 150 vendors of hand-crafted arts, coastal cuisine, Oregon wine and local brews. The festival is a major fundraiser for not only the AWACC, but dozens of community organizations that participate in the event, as well as hundreds of small businesses from our vendors and performers to hotels, restaurants and shops in the region.
Eat! Enjoy a selection of northwest flavors from a dozen food vendors. The menus in recent years have included crab and shrimp melts and cocktails, crab cakes, fried oysters, fish tacos, crab mac & cheese, salmon & tuna poke bowl, crabby leek chowder, crab bisque, smoked brisket, bacon wrapped asparagus, sausages, corn dogs, Greek cuisine, and more.
Drink! Tour Oregon’s renowned wine country with 40 wineries offering a multitude of varietals made in Oregon, primarily using northwest-grown grapes. Local craft breweries will be serving up their favorite foamy brews. And, for those that prefer their spirits distilled, we’ve got you covered, too. Be sure to stop by the Hydration Station, sponsored by NW Natural, for water in between sips of wine, too. Click here for the list of 2023 Award Winners from our festival’s wine competition.
Be Merry! Enjoy live music on two stages throughout the weekend, featuring performers from a variety of genres to keep your toes tapping. Stroll through the aisles of more than 100 booths featuring local artists, northwest-made products and more. Our Entertainment Sponsor is Toyota.
