Event description

Description

The Bodega Bay community will host its 44th Annual Fisherman’s Festival. The Festival is packed with events for people of all ages – craft booths, live music, good food, entertainment and more. A favorite attraction is the wine tasting booth featuring more than 25 Sonoma County wines and a beer booth with several local ales. Plus we have something for every palate from barbecued oysters, local fish ‘n chips, clam chowder and a variety of food trucks. Live music and entertainers perform on the main stage all day Saturday and Sunday. Artisans and vendors from all over California and beyond offer a wide selection of arts and crafts.

The festival has its origin as a celebration of the start of the Salmon fishing season and the annual Blessing of the Fleet. Each year’s theme is chosen by the Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Marketing Association. At the Festival site itself you’ll see a wooden boat challenge where participating teams build a vessel and compete in a boat race.

The Fisherman’s Festival is a great venue for kids with a play area for face painting, games, a touch tank tide pool, bouncy houses and more.

Sunday morning will feature the Blessing of the Fishing Fleet when decorated boats parade out of the harbor to receive a blessing from local clergy.

The Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival is a 501(c)(3) California nonprofit charitable organization and is 100% volunteer-run by local community members. All proceeds from the Festival benefit Bodega Bay Area community services and in 2015 the Fisherman’s Festival distributed $66,000 to local non-profit organizations.
