Annual Depoe Bay Crab Feed & Wooden Boat Show

Posted by OCVA / April 21, 2013

Depoe Bay is hosting its annual Crab Feed, Wooden Boat Show and Ducky Derby at the bay front, with food and fun for all.

Dinners of locally caught Dungeness crab with all the trimmings will be served at the Community Hall on both Saturday April 20 and Sunday April 21.  Half crab dinners are just $12 and full crab dinners are $18.  Indoor and outdoor dining options and a beer garden will be available.

The wooden boat show at “the world’s smallest harbor” will feature forty exhibits of both vintage and modern vessels from all over the Northwest. A free model boat building demonstration provides both the young and young-at-heart the opportunity to build their own model.

Hundreds of colorful bathtub ducks will be released to race into the harbor at noon on Sunday for the Ducky Derby.  Buy a ticket for a chance to win great prizes provided by Depoe Bay merchants, including clothing, food and an authentic shipwreck treasure coin and lady’s gold coin pendant.

Depoe Bay’s U.S. Coast Guard station will open its doors to tours of its patrol and rescue boats stationed in “the world’s smallest harbor”.  If you’ve ever wondered what its like to be on the Pacific with the Coast Guard, this is your opportunity!

Bring your camera because Louie, the giant mascot of the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, will be on hand.  It may be your only chance to get “up close and personal” with a crab the size of a school bus!
