Mark your diaries, the Mandurah Crab Fest is back this March and we can’t wait. There’ll be crab as far as the eye can see, four epic foodie experiences, live music, competitions, cooking demonstrations and aquatic entertainment for all to enjoy.

Mandurah’s eastern foreshore will come to life over the festival weekend with foodie experiences taking place at some of Mandurah’s most iconic locations. The Crab Fest will run on 18—19 March, with food events kicking off on 17 March. Tickets are on sale now, so what are you waiting for?

Here’s what not to miss at this year’s Crab Fest.

Crab Boil

If you like eating delicious seafood, getting your hands dirty and having fun with friends you’ve got to get down to the Crab Boil. At this cracker event you’ll get to feast on juicy, whole crabs that have been boiled in a scrumptious stock with prawns, mussels, clams, sweetcorn, potatoes and smoky sausage. Yummo!

When: Saturday 18 March, 6pm onwards
Where: In front of Nino’s, in the Mandurah Ocean Marina
Tickets: $80 per person, available 

High Tea Under The Fig Tree

The only thing better than devouring delectable delights while overlooking a stunning estuary and sipping sparkling is doing it all with your besties. Grab your friends and get frocked up for this fancy-pants high-tea with an outdoorsy twist. There’ll be plenty of delicious, locally-made sweet and savoury treats to enjoy as well as a glass of sparkling on arrival.

When: Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 March, 2pm—4pm
Where: Under the Morten Bay Fig tree, adjacent to Stingray’s Point
Tickets: $70 per person, available 

Dinner Under The Stars, With Fervor 

We’ve had Fervor’s pop-up dining experiences on our foodie bucket list for yonks and if you have too, the Dinner Under The Stars event as part of the Crab Fest is not to be missed. You and your dining compadres will be taken to a super secret location in the Peel region before sitting down to enjoy an eight-course degustation filled with surprises (as well as fresh and local ingredients) coupled with stories told by Aboriginal elders. We’ll see you there!

When: Friday 17 March, 6pm until late
Where: At a secret location in the Peel region
