About the Crab Fest
We look forward to welcoming everyone back 18-19 March 2023.
Crab Fest is the largest free regional event in Western Australia attracting over 100,000 locals and visitors to the City of Mandurah. The event showcases the lifestyle, location, culture and talent that makes Mandurah so unique. Of course, Crab Fest would not be Crab Fest without a celebration of the native blue manna crab!
Fresh food, live music, performances, children’s entertainment, competitions, cooking demonstrations, celebrities, aquatic entertainment… the list goes on. If you want a taste of Mandurah this is the festival for you!
This festival is for crabs and people only - leave your pets at home.
