This year’s Brinnon ShrimpFest to add more of the Hood Canal variety – plus a rock concert

BRINNON — It’s a shrimp festival that’s getting jumbo.

Now in its 12th year, this weekend’s Brinnon ShrimpFest adds more shrimp and a live rock band to its waterfront venue beginning today (Saturday).

Better get there early if you want a taste of the festival’s big draw and reason for being — Hood Canal spot shrimp.

Festival volunteers this year prepared 1,000 pounds of Hood Canal shrimp, and they’ll sell 770 containers of 22 shrimp each, said festival volunteer Debbie Williams.

That for $11 a container, with proceeds going to programs that benefit the Hood Canal community.

“It goes really fast on Saturday,” Williams warns.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday on the grassy part of Dosewallips State Park in Brinnon, east of U.S. Highway 101 and north of the Dosewallips River.

The shrimp are harvested during the canal’s shrimp season.

Last year, it was sold out before noon on Saturday.

After selling out, two-pound containers of Taylor Shellfish Co. shrimp will be sold for $12.
