Mandurah Crab Fest set to grab food lovers

THE Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest has a long history of offering unique food experiences for all ages and tastes and this year’s event is no different.

The main festival, on March 18 and 19, is free with a number of unique ticketed food experiences available.

On Friday evening, guests can experience the Dinner Under The Stars with Fervor.

Supported by the local Bindjareb Aboriginal elders, diners will be treated to a uniquely Peel region location steeped in Aboriginal heritage and stories.

Patrons will be bussed to the location where elders will perform a welcoming ceremony and give diners an insight into the special qualities of the site through storytelling and music.

Tickets cost $195 each and feature an intimate, long table, eight course degustation menu.

Also that evening, a progressive dinner cruise is on offer.

Ticket holders can cruise through the waterways and enjoy a mouth-watering progressive dinner from some of the city’s finest restaurants. Tickets cost $120.

New to this year’s festival, the crab boil provides the chance to enjoy crabs, prawns, mussels, clams, sweetcorn, potatoes and smoky sausage in an experience popular in the American deep south.

The crab boil is on the Saturday at 6pm.

Tickets cost $80 each and bookings are essential.

Festival-goers can also experience pure indulgence at the unique high tea under Mandurah’s iconic Moreton Bay Fig Tree.

The event is now available on Saturday and Sunday at 2pm .

Tickets are $70 each and bookings are essential.
