Event Details

51st Annual Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival.

Theme: Fishin' Ambition

Welcome to the Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival, a family friendly fundraiser for 25 local non profits. Since 1973, this

event has celebrated our local fisherman and it’s when salmon season is kicked off with a blessing of the fleet. The

Festival is packed with events for people of all ages: over 60 craft booths, live music, good food, entertainment and


The Fisherman’s Festival is an all-volunteer event and proceeds benefit Bodega Bay Area community services.

The festival has its origin as a celebration of the start of the Salmon fishing season and the annual Blessing of the

Fleet. Each year’s theme is chosen by the Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Marketing Association. At the Festival site itself,

you’ll see a wooden boat challenge where participating teams build a vessel and compete in a boat race.

A favorite attraction is the wine tasting booth featuring more than 25 Sonoma County wines and a beer booth with

several local ales. Plus we have something for every palate; barbecued oysters, local fish & chips, clam chowder

and a variety of non-seafood food trucks. Live music and entertainers perform on the main stage all day Saturday

and Sunday. Artisans and vendors from all over California and beyond offer a wide selection of arts and crafts.

The Fisherman’s Festival is a great venue for kids with a play area for face painting, games, a touch tank tide pool,

jumpy houses, pony rides. Leashed Pets are welcome and encouraged to attend. Sunday morning will feature the

Blessing of the Fishing Fleet when decorated boats parade out of the harbor to receive a blessing from local clergy.
