41st Annual Astoria Warrenton



The 2023 wine competition was held on March 18 featuring 97 wines submitted by 24 wineries. A panel of five judges boasting decades of experience in the wine industry scored each of the wines using a 20-point scale. It was a very difficult decision to arrive at the Best of Show selections for both red and white wines. Attendees of the UnWined event that evening cast their votes for the People’s Choice Award.

Astoria Warrenton


In the autumn of 1981, Chamber members Dan Andriesian, Bill Pitman, Jim Durham, Bobbie McCallister, Jean Anderson, Chuck Farmer and Dorothy Comstock were charged with bringing people to the area in the off season.

The committee came up with the idea of a crawfish festival, and soon decided that “Crab and Seafood” had a more appealing name. Dan assumed the helm amid many comments of “hairbrained” and grumblings of wasted time and money allocated that first year. Andriesian continued to plan, for “The Great Astoria Crab Feed and Seafood Festival” and in a moment of optimism, ordered 800 crabs for the dinner!

As it turned out the one-day event held on March 27, 1982, in a 10,000 square-foot building (the current Red Building) drew an estimated 6,000 people. The 800 crab dinners sold for $7.50 and they were gone by 5:30 p.m. There were 30 booths offering food, Oregon wines, and crafts, and the Rotary Club featured a beer garden. There were tours of commercial and charter fishing boats, and films of local sea life. The USCG 44-foot motor lifeboat and the CCC Forerunner were tied up at the pier so people could look at those boats close-up.

The festival would be a yearly celebration, moving to several places as it grew. It was at Pier 1 warehouse, Pier 2 in a new building, a Tongue Point Hanger, Warrenton City Park, Camp Rilea, the Hammond Mooring Basin, and finally settled in the Clatsop County Fairgrounds in 2002. We can conclude that “hairbrained” ideas have a positive way of working for this chamber as long as there are people that work to make it happen!

The festival is a big part of this community, and the community is a big part of the festival’s success.

The Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce appreciates the continued support from all our vendors, contractors, sponsors, volunteers and attendees. Thank you for being a part of our first four decades. Let’s do it again next year!


Behind every successful event there is an extraordinary volunteer team. More than 300 people give their time and talents to ensure the crab festival is well-organized, safe and enjoyable for all. Please know that we could not do this without your hard work. We are forever grateful to each and every one of you.
