Check Out the Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival

The Ocean Shores shoreline and the water found off them are home to endless adventure. From learning how to surf near Damon Point to horseback riding on the beach, there’s plenty of fun to be had in or near the water. The beaches in Ocean Shores are also known for their excellent clamming opportunities. Digging for this delicacy is one of the most popular things to do when staying at Oyhut Bay Seaside Village during the fall and winter. However, there’s another way to enjoy clams and seafood: the Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival.

What to Know about the Annual Ocean Shores Event

Taking place in mid-March, the Ocean Shores Razor Clam & Seafood Festival is an annual celebration of all things seafood. For three days, the Ocean Shores Convention Center hosts the popular gathering that brings together seafood vendors, artisans, and musicians.

Be sure to bring your appetite. The food booths feature a variety of seafood options, including:

  • Fish and chips
  • Crab shooters
  • Smash burgers
  • Russian dumplings
  • Scallops
  • Raw Oyster Bar

While the festival is free to attend, most things to do within the event are not. Pre-order your dungeness crab dinner, or purchase tickets for the Sunday crab benedict breakfast. You can also purchase a tasting passport, allowing you to sample nine chowders.

As you wander the Vendor Village or dig into delicious dishes from the food booths, enjoy live music from local acts like Deerswerver, Raucous, and SR 109.
