Texas Crab Festival

Dear Texas Crab Festival Friends,

We had hoped for a Labor Day festival, but given the spike in Texas Covid cases, new closures, (including schools) and the need to avoid large gatherings, we have cancelled the 2020 Texas Crab Festival.

Our team is as disappointed as you, but confident this is the right choice for the safety of thousands of people.

Your Golf Cart Raffle ticket purchase is still valid, and the drawing will be September 6 as scheduled.

We have a plan. It involves a better-than-ever Mother’s Day Weekend Crab Festival in 2021, when we come back healthy and stronger than ever!

Stay tuned for more opportunities to get those 2020 T-shirts. (Collector’s items!) We’re still working for our kids and none of this could happen without you. Thank you for your continued support and kind words.



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.
