2023 TCF T-Shirt Contest Winners

The Texas Crab Festival Committee received five outstanding entries in the annual TCF T-shirt design contest for 2023. Although the judges were challenged with all the excellent entries, the winning designs were selected. The first place design will be printed on the official 2023 Texas Crab Festival T-shirt which will be available for purchase as early as next month. The runner-up design will be printed on the “Crab Patrol” T-shirts worn by all volunteers at the festival. A Big Thanks to all the artists who participated in this time honored TCF tradition.

Congratulations to the winners!
