On Sat. join the fun on the poker run, and visit the shops and restaurants in Winchester Bay and Reedsport. The Sat. night entertainment features "Soulpie" a favorite band for dancing under the stars. More than 300 classics enter each year, and the proud owners are always happy to talk to admirers. Many owners bring lawnchairs to sit next to their show stoppers so they can describe the restoration project to anyone interested. The parade of champions is your turn to settle into a lawnchair as the cruisers go by and receive trophies.

Crab Bounty Hunt - Winchester Bay
Starts on Labor Day Weekend for a Month


Catch a tagged crab and it might be worth $1000. Take all the tagged crab you haul in to Sportsmen's Cannery where they will take your picture and record the tag number. If that number matches the secret tag number locked away in a local bank, it's worth $1000 in cold crustacean cash! In the event the winning crab isn't caught the money will be divided among the other tag holders in a game of luck. Crabbing is especially good this year, so even if you don't have the winner, you have dinner.
