Mandurah’s Crab Fest has secured WA Government funding for the next three years as part of a new agreement through Tourism Western Australia’s Regional Events Program.
The funding will see the festival return again on March 18-19 and then again in 2024 and 2025.
Crab Fest is one of the state’s largest free regional community events, attracting crowds of around 100,000 on average.
“This much-loved annual event supports local businesses and celebrates Mandurah’s famous blue manna crabs while offering a family-friendly festival atmosphere on the foreshore,” said Tourism minister Roger Cook.
“I know many people are looking forward to this event and will be delighted to see its return.”
Mandurah MP David Templeman welcomed the return of the event.
“I will be heading down this year with my family as it is always a great weekend in our beautiful region,” he said.
