2023 Nehalem Bay Crab Derby
Scheduled to coincide with Free Fishing Weekend, Kelly’s Brighton Marina will release 26 tagged crabs on Saturday morning and a $10 per ticket entry fee is required to participate in the Crab Derby, with proceeds from ticket sales going to the sponsored charities – the MuddNick Foundation of Manzanita, OR and Animal Haven By The Sea Rescue in Nehalem, OR. All captured tagged crabs must be returned to the marina by 5:00pm and a drawing will be held to determine the top prize of $1,000 cash. We are excited to welcome back the band “Uncle Jerry” from Cannon Beach who will perform at 6pm. Live music, games, crafts, many great vendors, raffles, and a wide array of prizes round out an exciting event that we hope will become an annual tradition for all who attend!
