Crab, Wine & Beer Festival

January 20 - January 29

Cook-off Fun!

Join the fun at Mendocino County’s 18th annual Crab, Wine & Beer Festival. Mendocino County is home to fishermen who harvest the bounty of the sea and to grape growers, winemakers, and brewmasters who produce fine wines and brews that pair exquisitely with our local Dungeness crab. Held midway through the long winter months, the 10-day countywide festival is an opportunity to shrug off the winter blues and indulge in fine seafood, wine, and beer.

We create dozens of events for you to enjoy: family-style cioppino and crab feeds, gourmet crab inspired dinners, food and wine pairings, crabbing adventures, a Wine Competition showcasing local wines, and the ever popular Crab Cake Cook-off on January 28 that highlights the talents of local chefs.

The Calendar of Events is full of activities… it’s no wonder this festival was named one of the Top 10 Seafood and Wine Festivals in the country by Coastal Living magazine.

We look forward to seeing you in January!
