Annual Dungeness Crab & Wooden Boat Show Means Food and Fun on the Coast April 21-22, 2018
Depoe Bay will be cooking up locally caught Dungeness crab and showing off colorful classic wooden boast at the world’s smallest harbor on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, 2018. Indoor and outdoor dining will be available, with a selection of thirst-quenching brews in the beer garden.
Thousands of pounds of delicious whole Dungeness crab will be cooked to perfection in front of Depoe Bay’s Community Hall at 220 S.E. Bay Street. Complete Dungeness crab meals include coleslaw, dinner roll and beverage. Meals will be served from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm Sunday.
On Sunday April 22 “the world’s smallest harbor” will see hundreds of colorful bathtub ducks released to race in the annual Ducky Derby. Buy a ticket for a chance to win great prizes provided by Depoe Bay merchants, including clothing, dining passes and an authentic antique silver shipwreck treasure coin.
On both Saturday and Sunday a free model boat building demonstration provides both the young and young-at-heart with the opportunity to build a boat to take home. It’s a fun experience the whole family will enjoy.
Thanks to a resident pod of gray whales, Depoe Bay enjoys near year-round whale watching and has become known as “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.
