Crab, Wine and Beer Festival 2018

January 19, 2018 - January 28, 2018

Crab Cake Cook-off

Join us for the 19th annual Crab, Wine & Beer Festival happening January 19 to 28, 2018! Mendocino County is home to an abundance of people who live in concert with the rhythms of nature. High on the list of these hardy folk are our fishermen, grape growers, wine makers and brew masters. Each in their own way plays with the subtleties of the seasons to use the bounty of their particular endeavors for their livelihood and also for the enjoyment of others. This 10-day countywide Crab, Wine & Beer Festival is a celebration of their efforts! It takes place in the middle of the long winter season, a time when the demands of our daily lives are a bit slower, allowing us all an opportunity to partake in fine seafood, wine and beer while enjoying the cool weather and short days, along with good company.

Take part in family style cioppino and crab feeds, gourmet winemaker dinners, wine and crab pairings, beer tasting, outdoor adventures, lodging specials, arts and performances, and more. The highlight of the festival is the Crab Cake Cook-off & Wine Competition, a fundraiser for Mendocino Coast Clinics. This hugely popular event sells out every year, so get your tickets early!
