One of WA’s biggest free regional events and a favorite across Peel Region, the Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest is finally making a comeback after three years.
Mandurah’s flagship event will return on March 18th and 19th, with the event stretching from the city center, along the Eastern Foreshore, to Mandjar Square and all the way to Mandurah Ocean Marina.
There will be plenty to see and do at this popular event, including authentic culinary experiences at pop-up food stalls, live music, workshops, exhibits and activities for all ages, plus events paid specials.
One of Australia’s most beloved television chefs, ‘Fast Ed’ Halmagyi, will join the Mandurah Crab Fest as the event’s ambassador for 2023.
Fast Ed has over 20 years of experience cooking in some of the world’s finest restaurants and is one of many celebrities to join the Crab Fest lineup.
Mayor Rhys Williams said the city was thrilled the Mandurah Crab Fest was returning after its three-year hiatus and that it added to the momentum the city had built throughout the year.
“This year has been exceptionally positive for Mandurah so far. We have seen the completion of our waterfront redevelopment, been recognized as the best tourist town in WA and of course the iconic Giants of Mandurah exhibit,” he said.
“To continue this momentum, we are very happy to announce the return of Crab Fest in 2023.
“Crab Fest is part of Mandurah’s DNA. It not only provides the opportunity to celebrate all the parts of our city that we love, but more importantly provides a strong economic boost to our local tourism and hotel operators. We are very proud to see the return of this event next year.
