9th annual Crab Festival & Celebrity Crab Cracking Contest in Union Square
Ready, Set, Crack!
For the 9th year, the Chancellor Hotel and Luques Restaurant & Bar Will Be Participating in the Crab Festival at Union Square - A Fundraiser for the San Francisco 49ers Foundation.
The San Francisco 49ers and Other Local Celebrities Team Up With Local Chefs for a Crab Cracking Contest With Food, Beer and Wine Tastings Saturday, February 26, 12:00 Noon - 3:00 p.m. There will be a crab cracking demonstration that will be followed by a contest to see who can crack the most crab. For a nominal sampling fee, local restaurants will provide tastes of the city's beloved Dungeness Crab and patrons can enjoy Wine & Beer. Music and family entertainment including a children's booth and activities for the entire family are included in the event. Again this year, the Crab Festival will be a "zero waste" event. In partnership with Recology Golden Gate and the San Francisco Department of the Environment, all materials used at the event will be compostable and/or recyclable.
Admission is FREE. Tickets for food, beer and wine tastings are $5 each or 6 for $25. Tickets may be purchased the day of the event at a designated ticket booth - cash only.
