2019 Petaluma Area Crab Feeds

All-You-Can-Eat Affairs 

Are the Primary Fundraisers for Area Non-Profits

Petaluma Floathouse

The Petaluma Small Craft Center installed the pilings for our Turning Basin floathouse this past summer and are now looking for a bit more help funding the rest of the project. There are many “naming” and recognition opportunities available to those interested in helping bring this great project to fruition. Contrary to the perception conveyed by all the recent articles about dredging, which is much needed to help keep the river economy afloat, the river is still usable for human powered traffic. And, the more we use it, through projects like the Floathouse, the more pressure it puts on civic leaders to finally dredge the river. Visit  www.petalumasmallcraftcenter.org or visit their Facebook page for more info. 

2019 Petaluma Area Crab Feeds

Although three Petaluma area crab feeds already occurred in December,  the heart of the Petaluma area crab feed season starts up in January and continues through until March,  ending with a bang at Heidrun Meadery’s incredible feed, run by Chef Matt Elias and Laine Ayre of the Bodega food truck. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind when attending a crab feed. First, they are usually the primary fundraisers for area non-profits, are run by volunteers, and often sell out. Therefore, buy your tickets early, even if you aren’t sure you can make it, and then give your tickets away if you can’t. Also, contribute to the raffles and auctions, and buy into a few drinks, desserts, or whatever extra they have. It all goes towards good causes, so be generous. And because they are run by volunteers, be patient. You may not get restaurant quality service (although you’ll often get much better), but just enjoy the experience of this local tradition and of getting to know the new people seated around you, knowing that your contributions are going directly to local non-profits who in turn help locals in need. 

Also, don’t be afraid to bring your own tools (bibs, crackers, butter warmers, etc.) and if a feed includes free drinks (many do), it is usually okay to BYOB, if you prefer. But please, be discreet. 

The times listed are simply when the doors open; dinner usually starts anywhere from a half to an hour later, so don’t feel like you need to be there right away. And these are all-you-can-eat affairs, so don’t worry about them running out if you don’t get there early. For the full descriptions and ticket buying options, see either the Petaluma Argus-Courier’s December 17, 2018 print edition or visit www.petaluma360.com,  or do a Google or Facebook search.
