28th Annual Penn Cove Musselfest

One of our members is a engineer for penn cove shellfish.
Come taste world famous mussels. This is always a wonderful event.

Come join us for the Penn Cove MusselFest—Coupeville’s March tradition. “Bold, briny and blue,” the world famous mussels will be the centerpiece of two days of festivities, including chowder tasting and mussel eating competitions, farm tours and activities for all ages featuring locally-flavored fun.

Visitors to the festival, a tradition now in its 28th year, should start at the MusselFest Headquarters, located at the Coupeville Recreation Hall in the heart of historic downtown Coupeville. Here they can purchase tickets to the festival favorite Mussel Chowder Tasting Competition, which pits local restaurants against each other for the coveted Mussel Chowder prize. The competition sells out quickly, so organizers recommend that visitors buy their tickets before 1:00pm.

MusselFest Headquarters is also the center for mussel cooking demonstrations, the daily mussel eating competition, and tickets for the mussel farm boat tour. This year, visitors will cruise to the Penn Cove Shellfish mussel farm aboard the Glacier Spirit. Families visiting Coupeville will enjoy singing along with children’s music recording artist Nancy Stewart and enjoying creative activities the kids will love. The merchants of Coupeville’s historic waterfront downtown will offer extended hours for art walk shopping.

No festival experience is complete without a stop by the Musselfest beer and wine gardens. The Waterfront Wine & Beer Garden provides locally crafted brews from Flyers Brewery, with nearby family outdoor dining.

$20 Transportation to the event and back. We will pool in a van and ride a ferry to get there.
