Bandon Crab Fest

Due to Oregon State Mandates with regard to COVID-19, the 2021 Bandon Crab Festival has been cancelled. Please join us for the festivities in 2022!

Get crabby!  Join your fellow seafood lovers for a crab dinner, music, dancing, and fun.

Crabbing is an integral part of the Bandon community.  To celebrate and honor this tradition, Bandon celebrates with a Crab Fest the first weekend of February.

Each year, some of Bandon’s favorite musicians entertain throughout each meal. Saturday night dinner comes alive with dance music, while Sunday afternoon brings easy-listening. Whichever your preferred time and listening pleasure, the Crab Fest is not to be missed!

The Bandon Crab Festival was created as a “rotating fundraiser” with beneficiaries announced each year prior to the event. Proceeds from 2020 went to the Bandon High Industrial Arts vocation class, and the 2019 inaugural event to the Bandon Historical Museum.
