The historic maritime communities of Astoria and Warrenton, Oregon, traditionally celebrate the bounty of the Pacific Ocean with a festival during the last weekend of April. This year, in an effort to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, vendors, and attendees, the 39th Annual Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival, presented by Fred Meyer, will be held online. In this virtual format, attendees will still get the chance to connect with their favorite vendors, musicians, and fellow attendees online. Although this event won’t be in person as it has been in year’s past, it will be unlike any virtual event you’ve attended before.
The Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce is offering the 2021 Virtual Festival on the Event Hub platform, an immersive and engaging online event space. This is something you can be a part of from wherever you’re located. The virtual vendor village welcomes attendees to visit booths from wineries, artists, jewelry makers, and food vendors to check out their shops, place orders, and participate in live chat with the vendor during festival hours. The main stage this year will feature favorite festival musicians as well as new offerings like scheduled interactive demonstrations from chefs, artists, and local experts. This will all be available and accessible through our event website from wherever you call home.
During the following times, the virtual event will be considered “live,” meaning all vendors will be logged into their booths, ready to interact with attendees, the main stage will be in operation with music and demonstration presentations, and the Happy Hour Chat Room will be open anyone to join and mingle.
Live Festival Hours: PT
Friday, April 23: 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Saturday, April 24: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM and 4:00 – 6:00 PM
Sunday, April 25: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
All other hours, starting Friday, April 23 and through Sunday, May 23, the booths will still be accessible through the event site. Attendees will still be able to place orders from the booths; however, vendors will not be available for chat, happy hour will be closed, and the main stage will not be in operation.
Access to the Festival will remain available here, on this site, from April 23-May 23.
