The Brinnon ShrimpFest is a weekend festival located just north of Brinnon celebrating Hood Canal Spot Shrimp and other local seafood. It lures hungry shrimpers from all over the Northwest to fish Hood Canal’s rich waters. We feature craft booths, food booths, belt sander races, exhibits, live music, kids activities and so much more.

  • Bring along your favorite decorated belt sander to enter the races that will be held (times to be announced soon).
  • The tides are usually low enough during this weekend for easy harvest of clams and oysters on the public beaches near the festival, (license required) and the weather is traditionally good during this holiday weekend.
  • This is great family fun! Come join us this year.

The festival began in 1993. Over the years, the proceeds have benefited our community through donations to the Brinnon School and the Brinnon Volunteer Ambulance & Firefighters Association, Brinnon and Quilcene Community Centers as well as many other community projects


ShrimpFest is located between the Yelvik General store and the Cove RV Park & Country Store, 251 Hjelvicks Rd, Brinnon, WA 98320. Proceeds from ShrimpFest 2019 will be donated to community projects.
