The Texas Crab Festival is celebrating its 32nd Year! The Texas Crab Festival has done it up Gulf-Coast-style every Mother’s Day weekend since 1986, and 2017 offers yet another fun-filled weekend of food, live music and family entertainment.
Fabulous local seafood is featured throughout the festival, with a variety of delicious crab dishes taking center stage. From crab cakes to BBQ crab to the big Crab Gumbo Cookoff there’s more crab than you can shake a claw at. Take part in a food experience so unique it was featured on episodes of the Food Network show “Eating America” with Anthony Anderson, and "Carnival Eats" with Noah Cappe.
There’s entertainment all-day, every day of the festival with a full lineup of music featuring Gulf-Coast favorites, a Kids’ Stage, a Carnival Midway, and the ever popular Crab Races. Join in the fun of our famous Crab Legs Contest, the Two-Step Dance Contest, the National Wiener Dog Races or test your mettle in the Washers Tournament. There’s even a 5K Fun Run! Browse booths from local merchants and check out the Arts and Crafts area for fine art, clothing and crafts with a coastal twist. Or just kick back, relax and enjoy the spectacular sights and sounds of the Texas Crab Fest. Check out the full lineup of entertainment and events on our website: TexasCrabFestival.org
Proceeds from the festival help to support educational scholarships, job training programs and other charitable projects that benefit residents of the Bolivar Peninsula. So don’t miss out on the fun – make plans to attend the 2017 Texas Crab Festival at Gregory Park in Crystal Beach, Texas for our big 32nd Anniversary Celebration, and the Biggest one yet!
