Preparing to Cook some Oregon Dungeness Crab

Thousands of pounds of locally caught whole Dungeness crab will be cooked to perfection at the upcoming Annual Depoe Bay Crab Feed on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23, 2017.

The Depoe Bay Community Hall at 220 S.E. Bay Street is where Dungeness crab will be served on both Saturday and Sunday.  Indoor and outdoor dining will be available, with a selection of brews in the beer garden courtesy of the Rusty Truck Brewing Co.

The 22nd annual Classic Wooden Boat Show will display dozens of wonderful hand-crafted vessels on display at “the world’s smallest harbor” on both Saturday and Sunday.  While you’re there, try your hand at building your own vessel at the model boat building booth and bring it home.  It’s a fun experience for the whole family.  Admission to both events are free.

On Sunday April 23 hundreds of colorful bathtub ducks released into the harbor at the annual Ducky Derby.   Buy a ticket for a chance to win great prizes provided by Depoe Bay merchants, including clothing, dining passes and authentic shipwreck treasure.

Thanks to a resident pod of gray whales, Depoe Bay enjoys year-round whale watching and has earned the title of “Oregon’s whale watching capitol”.  At the Whale Watching Center park rangers are ready to help spot gray whales.  The center is open daily from 10 AM to 4 PM and admission is free.
