Penn Cove Musselfest
March 2 & 3, 2019

Musselfest is a celebration of the World Famous Penn Cove Mussels.

The Penn Cove Musselfest is a two-day celebration of the seafood that is harvested just off-shore from Coupeville and sent to tables and restaurants as far away as New York City!

Lots of Fun Things To Do!

  • Chowder Tasting

    Buy your tickets, then head to the restaurants and businesses dishing up their take on mussel chowder. It’s a cooking competition and you’re the judge!

  • Cooking Demonstrations

    Chefs from Seattle and as far away as Southern California show their take on how to cook mussels! Best of all, unlike those TV shows, you get to eat what they cook!

  • Mussel Farm Tour

    Take a boat tour of the Penn Cove Shellfish mussel farm, just offshore from Coupeville.

  • Mussel Eating Contest

    Whether you participate, or just watch, it’s fun to see who can munch through a big bowl of mussels the fastest!

  • The Penn Cove Shellfish Mussel Tent (Saturday Only)

    Buy bowls of mussels cooked up right there by Penn Cove Shellfish’s own staff! Eat mussels dished up by the people that know them best! Also, listen to live music and have a brew!

  • Waterfront Beer Garden

    Enjoy mussels, people watch, enjoy the view of Penn Cove, and refresh yourself with a cold one in the Waterfront Beer Garden.
