Texas Crab Festival – NEW DATE



We are excited to announce a new date for the 2020 Texas Crab Festival, September 4-6, Labor Day Weekend. After much discussion, we decided to reschedule the 2020 festival, and based on positive feedback from our committees, sponsors, vendors, and many people we talked to, this would be a great weekend to have the event.

Our primary goal is to have a successful festival so we can fully fund scholarships for our 2020 graduating seniors. There are 14 graduating seniors on Bolivar who are deserving of scholarship assistance, and we are committed to helping them achieve their educational goals. Without a festival, Texas Crab Festival Charities would not have the funds available to help these worthy students.

As COVID-19 guidance and mandates change in the months leading up to the event, we will review each area of the festival and develop procedures to comply with the current requirements, and take all reasonable and prudent steps necessary to keep our visitors, volunteers, vendors, and entertainers safe.

Festival times are Friday: 6pm-Midnight, Saturday: 10am-Midnight, and Sunday: 10am-6pm.

Texas Crab Festival Charities is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves to improve the lives of those who call the Bolivar Peninsula home. Proceeds from the annual Texas Crab Festival and donations from our patrons are reinvested in the community and help fund youth scholarships and camps, local schools and volunteer fire departments, and various outreach initiatives. So while you, your family, and friends are enjoying all the music, art and fabulous food the Texas Crab Festival has to offer, know that you are also helping to give back to our very special and unique community.
