Vendors sell their wares at the Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival.

Despite many annual events being postponed until 2022, a handful of the North Coast’s festivals and events are returning this year.

Events so far have been held either virtually or with social distancing guidelines — or a hybrid of the two. For now, it looks like this will be the norm for at least a few more months.

The Crab, Seafood & Wine Festival is scheduled to happen from April 23 to April 25. Unlike previous years, the festival will be primarily virtual. Participants, vendors and performers will use an online platform to connect with one another through phone calls, video calls and other methods. Some aspects of the festival will be held in person under reduced capacity.

The April 22 edition of Coast Weekend will include information about this year’s festival. As a way to honor the festival’s history and impact on the area, Coast Weekend will feature a photo collection of readers’ crab fest photos.

If you have photos from past festival events and would like to share them, please send an email by April 12 to aevans@dailyastorian.com including your name and town of residence. If you remember which festival year your photos are from or have a short story about the photos, please feel free to share those. Please do not send in more than three photos.
