After folks dig up their limits of razor clams this Saturday (March 24), they can head to the Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival at the Ocean Shores Convention Center.

The event starts off with a 7 a.m. Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast, and then follows with festival until 4 p.m.

Professional and amateur cook-offs will be judged by local chef Kathy Casey. Amateur chowder cooks will be judged in two categories this year with first-time entries as one category and returning cooks in another. Cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category.

Other activities will include awarding the “Best Decorated Clam Shovel or Gun”; a salute to the businesses of Ocean Shores; the Artisan Craft Marketplace – featuring over 40 Northwest artists and crafters with unique and indigenous works; children’s activities and games; musical entertainment; information about coastal heritage, conservation and cultural exhibits; beer and wine bars featuring specialty drinks; and great food.

Cost is $3 per person, children 12 years old and under will be admitted free of charge.

For more information, including sponsor and vendor information, call the Ocean Shores/North Beach Chamber of Commerce at 360-289-2451 or visit the Ocean Shores website.
