Crab Festival is a time for the community to celebrate its abundant resources from the sea and the summer season. It is the intent of the management to coordinate a variety of family oriented activities that will provide men, women and children a festive and fun recreational outlet. For the Kodiak business person and local nonprofit, the Crab Festival is intended to be a prosperous time to enhance their business/organization and raise needed revenues.
