Barbecued oysters, local fish ‘n chips, clam chowder and a variety of food trucks. Live music and entertainers perform on the main stage all day Saturday and Sunday. Artisans and vendors from all over California and beyond offer a wide selection of arts and crafts.
The festival has its origin as a celebration of the start of the Salmon fishing season and the annual Blessing of the Fleet. Each year's theme is chosen by the Bodega Bay Fisherman's Marketing Association. At the Festival site itself you'll see a wooden boat challenge where participating teams build a vessel and compete in a boat race.
The Fisherman's Festival is a great venue for kids with a play area for face painting, games, a touch tank tide pool, bouncy houses and more.
Sunday morning will feature the Blessing of the Fishing
