Always popular, usually sell-outs, crab fests - in-person, drive-thrus and hybrid combos - are gearing up for 2022 throughout San Francisco area's towns.. (Shutterstock)
SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, CA — It's that time of year: Let the crab feed season begin!

Last year, the popular fests were either cancelled or held as drive-thrus, due to the pandemic. This year throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, the extravaganzas — often all-you-can-eat! — are planned for dine-in, takeout or a hybrid combo of both.

NOTE: This guide is a work in progress. As more events are announced, we will add them.

Always confirm with organizers the events are proceeding as planned when posted. If we missed your organization's crab feed, share with readers in the comments section, or email details, with online links, to susan.schena@patch.com.

Bookmark the page to use as a handy reference, as the feeds typically run through early spring, and this guide will be continually updated.

And Happy 2022 Crab Season, from Patch!
