Here you’ll find our old-fashioned crab feed complete with large kettles of fresh crab, Sunny Farms’ corn and Nash’s organic coleslaw. Seven of the finest local restaurants compliment the crab feed with more than 25 dishes and great desserts. There will be wine tasting by award-winning local wineries, a beer garden and music.

skillsgained Youth from the North Olympic Peninsula Skills Center will be up to their elbows in crab at this year’s festival celebration. The Skills Center offers cost effective, quality job training for students between the ages of 16 and 21. Students receive free career training as part of their public education, and the training prepares them to successfully enter the job market or further advance their education. During the past few years, the Skills Center students and their culinary director, Denise Dahl, have helped with the traditional crab feed. Students will be involved in the setup, logistics and planning of the festival, and learn about producing a festival and about the setup of a high volume food production line. They will be in charge of cleaning crab, plating up of dinners, shucking corn, filling butter cups and cutting and marinating coleslaw. The crew will serve approximately 3,000 dinners over a three-day period and look forward to seeing everyone at the festival celebrating the bounty of the Northwest.

your own crab $5 gets you 10 minutes to hook a crab! Join us at the Grab-a-Crab Derby area where everyone who attends the festival has a chance to not just eat, but catch their very own Dungeness crab. For just $5, you get 10 minutes to entice a hard-shelled crustacean onto your hook at the Grab-a-Crab Derby. No license or gear whatsoever is required. At City Pier, live crabs are held in two 2,000-gallon tanks provided by High Tide Seafoods and co-sponsored by Wilder Auto. To make things even more interesting, selected crabs will be tagged before going into the tank. If you’re lucky enough to catch one of these tagged crabs, then the crab is yours! But even if your crab isn’t tagged, you can still purchase your catch. The Crabs will be sold to Peninsula College men’s the public throughout basketball team will be on the weekend to take hand to clean and cook home or picnic, even your crab on the spot for a if you don’t join in the small donation. Crab Derby! This year, crabs will also be sold to the public throughout the weekend, even if you don’t join in the Crab Derby. This is the freshest crab you can buy! The commercial crabbing season opens Oct. 1, which is why the festival is held the second weekend of October. High Tide Seafoods will once again be catching crab for this year’s crab feed and derby. Every crab will be live — plucked from local waters — when it gets to the festival. High Tide also provides the tanks and manpower for setup and clean-up, cranes to move the tanks, and they pump water from the bay to keep the crab fresh. A crew of local volunteers led by Monte English, Leslie English, Kevin Kennedy and Jim Haguewood work behind the scenes to keep the derby rolling along. So come on out to the derby. The derby is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Cultural heritage

of Lower elwha Klallam t tribe

Immerse yourself in the cultural history of Lower Elwha Klallam tribe. The tribe will be showcasing music, dance and visual arts performances both days of the festival and will have artwork on display.

Opening Ceremony

The Elwha Klallam Dance Group will be the special guests during the festival’s Opening Ceremony at 11 a.m. Saturday. A member of the tribe will also present a blessing.

Music & Art

The Elwha Klallam Dance Group will perform on Saturday at their booth area on Lincoln Street and on the Crab Central Pavilion stage. The tribe will display one of the three canoes that are used in the Tribal Canoe Journey — an annual event where tribes from Western Washington and British Columbia use traditional waterways.

Projects Folks will be on staff to discuss many of the projects the tribe is working on, including the Elwha River dam removal project, salmon restoration, the new hatchery, the Valley Road project, and the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe’s Heritage Center — just to name a few! The Elwha River dams were constructed in the early 1900s without fish ladders, preventing salmon from migrating upstream to spawn. Tear-down of the two dams, scheduled to begin in 2011, is the nation’s largest dam removal to date. It will restore the river to its natural free-flowing state, allowing salmon and other fish to once again reach habitat and spawning grounds. The Lower Elwha Klallam tribe has lived on the river for more than 2,700 years. In fact, Port Angeles was once home to a huge village called Tse-whit-zen, which was unearthed in 2003 and is one of the largest

and oldest Native American villages found in the nation. The tribe’s new Heritage Center is at 401 E. First St., Port Angeles. The 9,908-square-foot training facility will be open for tours at 2 and 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Elwha River Casino & Shuttle

The Elwha River Casino, which is owned and operated by the Lower Elwha Klallam tribe, will host a Pendleton Jacket giveaway. During Crabfest, the casino will provide a free shuttle service between the festival grounds and the nearby casino. See the back page of the program for shuttle schedules.

Chefs share their

culinary secrets

The Olympic Peninsula is rich with culinary treasure. Learn tricks from the professionals with free demonstrations located at the Gateway Center and sponsored by First Federal, Olympic Restaurant Equipment and the Olympic Peninsula Culinary Tourism Association.

The chefs for the cooking demonstration appear courtesy of the Olympic Peninsula Loop Culinary Tourism Association (a.k.a. Olympic Culinary Loop), a nonprofit organization that exists to define and promote Olympic Coast Cuisine and celebrate the region’s unique culinary experience. Reflecting the diverse microclimates, coastal proximity and Native American heritage that characterize the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic Coast Cuisine combines sustainable locally-grown and foraged fruits, vegetables, herbs and berries, locally hunted game, bountiful local sea fare, and handcrafted local wines in a “farm to table” experience that instills a unique sense of place. The Olympic Culinary Loop is proud to share this sense of place with you through a fantastic demonstration stage line-up of chefs from around the Olympic Peninsula and beyond. Each chef will use fresh, local ingredients to prepare mouth-watering Olympic Coastal Cuisine, from scallop ceviche with pickled chanterelle mushrooms, perfect for company, to comfort food at its local best — Dungeness crab mac & cheese.

Saturday 11 a.m. Chef Arran Stark, Cultivated Palette Catering, Port Townsend Preparing: “Everything Salmon...Methods Class” The MC for the Food Demonstration Stage will be chef Arran Stark of Cultivated Palette Catering, Port Townsend. His culinary career began as an apprentice at Atlanta’s Le Petite Auberge under chef Wolfgang Gropp, which led to him working with French Master Chef Bernard Goupy at the famed Le Clos at Chateau Elan. Arran’s career journey took him from the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to the Hotel Wheatleigh in the Berkshires and on to Atlanta as executive chef at Glen Arven Country Club. Arran and his wife, Micaela, moved to Port Townsend in 2006 where dreams of a sustainable farm to table business took root in the form of Cultivated Palette Catering and Brassica Restaurant. noon Jess Owen, chef and owner at Ocean Crest Resort, Moclips Preparing: Wild salmon au poivre with maple and balsamic glazed strawberries, wild huckleberry and mushroom risotto, and grilled asparagus In the dining room Jess is known as a Certified Culinary Consultant.

Chef Jon Luzadder, Ajax Café, Port Hadlock Preparing: Linguini with butternut squash, mussels and wilted greens (locally sourced) Jon is a Southern California native who started his culinary career at the Culinary Tour in Irvine, working and apprenticing at restaurants in Chicago, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

He brings 25 years of kitchen experience and a commitment to use locally sourced ingredients.

2 p.m.

Chef Ron Anderson, Etta’s Seafood, Seattle Preparing: Cider steamed blueshell mussels, smoked hamhock Ron’s goal at Etta’s is to design local and seasonal menus, waiting for each ingredient to reach its perfect moment in season before he puts it on the customer’s plate. While working at a country club in Wenatchee, he admiringly watched the chef deftly and speedily slice through a pile of mushrooms, and from that moment, he was drawn to the culinary world. In 1997, he packed his jeep and drove to Seattle. In only five years, Ron worked his way up from sauté station line-cook at Etta’s, to sous chef, and then to the top kitchen position of chef in 2008. 3 p.m. Les Chan, Chef from Victoria, British Columbia Preparing: Imperial crab spring rolls Chef Chan is sure to entertain the crowd with his sharp wit and ongoing commentary throughout his demonstration. As a cooking instructor, he injects humor into his soldout culinary classes that bring people from all walks of life who are interested in good health and good eating. Chinatown’s unofficial ambassador, Chan is also a popular tour guide regaling visitors with its wild history. 4 p.m. Chef Jon Unruh, Wildfire Grill, Port Angeles Preparing: “Comfort Food at its Local Best… Dungeness Crab Mac & Cheese” Peninsula residents have followed long time Port Angeles chef, Jon Unruh, from his early days at a local favorite, the Bushwhacker, to the popular fine dining of the Wildfire Grill known for its wood-fired cuisine featuring local, in season ingredients. 5 p.m. Chef Kaleb Wallace, Michael’s Seafood & Steakhouse, Port Angeles Preparing: Fresh pasta with chanterelle mushrooms and Dungeness crab with Olympic Cellars Chardonnay Butter

To get an up close view of marine life, stop by the Feiro Marine Life Center, a nonprofit public aquarium located on Port Angeles City Pier, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. The center will host special exhibits for the weekend and also provide children’s crafts activities. Admission is free. The North Olympic Peninsula is an outdoor paradise, with the rugged Olympic Mountains and forests to the south, and the picturesque coastline along the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north. Port Angeles Harbor, Dungeness Bay and numerous other sites up and down the coast are home to the world famous Dungeness crab, as well as clams, oysters, several species of salmon and more. However, this paradise has its problems. Contamination periodically shuts down shellfish harvesting in coastal waters. Over fishing

and damage to spawning habitats have significantly reduced the once amazing salmon runs of the Olympic Peninsula. Come and learn about the many efforts that are underway locally to restore salmon runs, improve water quality, save endangered species, and improve our local crab and shellfish fisheries all in one spot. These organizations will be gathered inside and adjacent to the Education Pavilion set up on City Pier: • Beach Watchers of Clallam County • Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary • Streamkeepers of Clallam County • Olympic National Park • Feiro Marine Life Center (set up outside center entrance) • Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center (on the east side of the pier) • Olympic Environmental Council • Sierra Club

music lineup

Pearl Django returns to the Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival. They will perform twice on Saturday — one show at 1:30 p.m. and another at 4 p.m. provided photo


Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival 2010

A variety of musical styles can be found at the Crab Central Stage, sponsored by Jim’s Pharmacy and Elwha River Casino. All performances are free. For the second year in a row the festival is pleased to announce that Pearl Django, one of America’s most respected and busiest Hot Club style groups in the country will be presenting two shows on Saturday, Oct. 9. Though still strongly influenced by the music of Django Reinhardt, Pearl Django’s repertoire now includes many original compositions. Their music reaches out across the divides of taste to a wide variety of audiences. Deadwood Revival, a local favorite for many years, will be performing Saturday night from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. DWR is a string band comprised of four extraordinarily talented musicians from four completely different backgrounds coming together to create some of the most unassuming, honest “feel good” music filled with the spirit of old-time Appalachia, soulful American roots, jam-band improvisations and a whole lotta hootenanny! The band has just returned from an extended West Coast tour that included a number of premier festivals and venues.

at Crab Central Stage

On Saturday and Sunday, Cort Amrstrong brings his “chicken pickin’ ” style of country blues to the stage. Saturday will feature Armstrong Lawton Katz, a favorite in the Seattle area, and on Sunday Cort will bring his band Jangle Bones to join him. Both of these bands have performed at the Northwest Folk Life Festival and are featured on their event compilation CD. On Sunday afternoon, the festival will feature Watch the Sky! They have been a consistent presence in the Seattle area folk music scene since 1991. Jan and Chris Glanister and Joe Wagner bring Celtic verve to traditional, contemporary and original ballads and pub songs. Rich, tight vocals harmonies are their trademark, backed by driving rhythms and sweet whistle riffs. The Friday night community dinner will feature the contemporary/Latin jazz groove of Tanga. This group features four of the premier musicians from the Olympic Peninsula. It will be a great night to enjoy a delicious crab dinner and some fine music. For a complete entertainment schedule, see Page 11.

If you are planning to enjoy a Dungeness crab at the festival, then the crew will already have cooked and cleaned the crab for you. But if you’d like to try your hand at cooking and cleaning yourself, here are some simple instructions provided by Beth Schleve, former owner of B & D Seafood. For those of you just wanting to devour the already-cooked goodness, skip to Step 6. 1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, pour in some rock salt, bring water back to a boil and then add a whole crab. 2. Beth says she cooks her crab for approximately 12 minutes, removes it and places the crab in a bowl of ice water for an additional 20 minutes. 3. Place the crab on a table, belly-side up and pull back on triangular-shaped belly flap, or “apron.” 4. Remove the shell by inserting your thumb between body and shell at rear of crab and then pulling up. Beth says the triangular flap is connected to the top part of the crab. When you pull back on it the shell comes loose. (So you have the shell in one hand and the body in the other.)


how to crack a crab 5. Beth prefers to rinse out the roe (also called “crab butter”) by running it under cold water, but she acknowledges that some people like the “crab butter.” So, keep the roe or discard it, depending on your preference. 6. Use a knife to cut the crab’s body in half lengthwise or simply snap the body in half. You can squeeze the body between your thumb and forefinger, Beth says. Then just pick out the white meat of the body and get to eating. 7. Pull off and discard the spongy gills — usually brown and triangular in shape — and the cartilage separating the sections of meat. 8. Twist off claws and legs (of course you can eat the legs first and then the body if you wish). 9. Use a nutcracker, small hammer or your hands to crack open the leg shells. Beth says some people even use their teeth to open the shells. 10. Pick out the meat with a lobster pick, fork or tip of a crab claw. Don’t be intimidated by all the crab cracking — remember to have fun with it!

We have activities to entertain the smaller members of your family as the future stewards of the Pacific Northwest. Many of the events at the Crab Festival focus around the native environment, animals and sea life. Join us for the “Small Fry Series,” where kids can pull up a piece of carpet to hear stories, learn about the marine life around them, and find out what it takes to care for their surroundings.

Kids who get their card stamped when visiting the Environmental Education Area will get a prize and are entered into a drawing. Stop by the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula booth to get information. Weather permitting, there will also be an interactive Sunday Chalk Art Project. For more fun, stop by the Feiro Marine Life Center, where for $5 children can

decorate fish cut-outs as part of the Fish on the Fence fundraiser project for the marine center. Fish on the Fence is a streaming display of the marine life decorated and mounted on the fence around The Landing mall, all while raising money for the center in the process. Other activities will also be available at the marine center’s classroom.
