Newport Wild Seafood Weekend
Newport Fishermen’s Wives presents the annual Newport Wild Seafood Weekend festival in Newport on September 10 & 11. The Newport Wild Seafood Weekend is a two day celebration of our Northwest’s vital wild-caught seafood industry and the fishermen and families who go to sea to harvest it. This two-day festival will take place at Port Dock 7 of the Port of Newport and on along the Boardwalk on Newport’s Historic Bayfront.
The Newport Wild Seafood Weekend will feature on Saturday, the fourth annual Great Newport Wild Seafood Cook-Off which has fast become one of the most popular culinary events in all of the Northwest. Twenty teams, both professional and amateur will battle for over $2,500 in prize money and the honor of being “Best at the Bay.”
Newport Wild Seafood Weekend will feature The Wild Seafood Market and Wild Fish Walk where the public can connect with fishermen and buy direct, fresh wild seafood! Sunday’s The Wild Brunch will feature a delicious wild seafood dining experience on the Bayfront overlooking Newport’s diverse fishing fleet.
Tickets are $20 and can be obtained by emailing the Newport Fishermen’s Wives at firstname.lastname@example.org or from www.newportfishermenswives.com.
The proceeds benefit the Newport Fishermen’s Wives Fishing Families Relief Fund.
