Hosted in partnership between the Eureka Visitor Center and the Eureka Lodging Alliance, the inaugural Eureka Salt & Fog Fish Fest will be taking place along Eureka’s picturesque waterfront with activities starting on April 26th and culminating on April 28th. This sea-to-table event is a nod to Eureka’s fishing heritage, as well as a modern preview showcasing the City’s best restaurants, and chefs with bites featuring their favorite underwater ingredients. The three day event will kick-off Friday night with a pub crawls around Downtown and Old Town. On Saturday, venture to Madaket Plaza at the foot of C Street for a chowder cook-off, tall ships, local beer, bay tours on the Madaket, food trucks, yacht races, carriage rides and an opportunity to engage with Humboldt’s artisans and makers in a market type atmosphere. On Sunday, run the Fish Out of Water 5k and enjoy a post race Bloody Mary at participating bars and restaurants.
