CRAB KRACK FOR MARITIME CENTER RENOVATIONS SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 19

The sixth annual Crab Krack to raise funds for renovations at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center of the Lincoln County Historical Society will be held at 4 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 19 at the Best Western Agate Beach Inn in Newport.

Local Dungeness crab will be provided by Newport’s seafood processing plants, fishermen and Pacific Shrimp. Dinner will include a whole crab, various side dishes and an array of desserts, along with a no-host bar.

“Past Forward” will be playing nostalgic jazz from the 1920s through the 1960s, and there will be a silent and oral auction for stay-cation trips, furniture, quilts, artwork, tools, gift baskets and much much more.

Ticket sales for the Crab Krack are in full swing and going fast; tickets can be purchased at the Burrows House and Pacific Maritime & Heritage Museums. Cost for members is $40 per person, for non-members $45. Memberships start as low as $20 a year. For more information, to purchase tickets, or reserve your table for 8, call the Lincoln County Historical Society at 541-265-7509.

Newport has a long love affair with the Dungeness crab. In 1938, with an abundance of crab and a need for tourists, the town started a Crab Festival, giving away the delicacies by the thousands. During the first Crab Festival, 25,000 people visited Newport for the free lunch. The festival ended in 1951 with a big bang: 38 cases of crabs were shipped to soldiers in Korea.

The Lincoln County Historical Society is a nonprofit organization that operates the Burrows House Museum located at 545 SW Ninth Street in Newport and the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center at 333 SE Bay Blvd. in Newport. Admission to the Burrows House is by donation. Admission to the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center is $5 for adults, $3 for children 3 through 12. Members are free. Both museums are open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
