Arcata Oyster Festival And Trinidad Fish Festival This Weekend

It's a big weekend for festivals in Northern Humboldt County. First is the Oyster Festival on the Arcata Plaza. That takes place Saturday from 10am till 5:30pm. The restrictive fence that was tried out last year that included an admission fee has been scrapped. The event is free to enter, food and beverages including beer and wine are not free.
 A good guide to the Arcata Oyster Festival can be found in this weeks Mad River Union Newspaper which can be found all over the north county.  If you can't find one you can go online to http://oysterfestival.net/ for more information.

There will be shuttles picking up people from 3 locations because parking is a nightmare. The shuttle runs from 9 am till 6:30 pm. Locations are Arcata High School at 1720 M St.
Humboldt State University at 14th and Union streets and Samoa Blve just two blocks west of K St., follow the crowds.


The Trinidad Fish Festival is Sunday and the Greater Trinidad.com website has this:

Free tours of the working lighthouse on Trinidad Head.
The Trinidad Fish Festival began as a $1 all-you-can-eat crab feed in 1957. All festival workers are volunteer Greater Trinidad Chamber of Commerce Members and kind-hearted village folk. Come join us at this Fun for the Whole Family event.
Highlights include:
  • Charcoal-grilled salmon and whitefish, or deep-fried whitefish dinners – Salmon $15, Whitefish $11, Combo $13.  Children under 12, $8.  Senior Discount, $1
  • Soda, beer, and wine from Moonstone Crossing and Winnett Vineyards
  • Free live music all day – Lineup TBA

  • Tours of Trinidad Head Lighthouse tours (only happens once a year!)

Both events will be crowded so come early and wear comfortable shoes in case you have to walk further than expected.
