The Crab Fest 2020 is on!

Our mission is to teach a person how to catch, clean, and cook Crab, rather than give them a Crab……

Each participant will receive a Free Crab Trapper Set consisting of One (1) Crab Trapper Traps with line + (1) Bait Bag + (1) Bucket + (1) Crab Gauge, instructions, and locations.  All Crab caught will be cleaned and cooked for free.

How to have a Sustainable High Protein Food Supply from the Ocean

One hundred and eighty people (180) people can have free Dungeness Crab for the Thanksgiving weekend, Sat Nov 28 & Sun Nov 29 in Lincoln City, or Depoe Bay, and you do not need a dock or boat. 

What’s the catch?  You have to catch the Crab. Our organization will furnish a Free Crab Set – consisting of one (1) Crab Trap, bucket, crab gauge, location, and instructions – for up to three hours.   

How can we do this for just anyone? We are committed to teaching people how to thrive regardless of what happens around them, and the State of Oregon is waving the Crab License Fees on those days.

Each participant makes a refundable deposit for the Crab Set and provides their bait.  The bait can be any meat, but raw chicken works best.   There is a limit of one Crab Set/deposit.  (The deposit ensures we get our Crab sets back, and there is no charge unless the Crab Set not returned.)  The deposit may be a credit card, debit card, or cash.

 If desired, we will teach you how to clean and cook the Crab in Lincoln City Only. No limit to the number we clean and cook.
