Penn Cove Musselfest

Musselfest is a weekend celebration of the world-famous Penn Cove Mussels that are sustainably farmed in Penn Cove, a short distance from Coupeville on Whidbey Island. The event is a food-lover’s dream with 16 chefs creating their own special chowders featuring mussels. People buy tasting tickets and traverse the town sampling the entries. There are four different tasting tickets each with four of the competing entries. Each ticket is $10. There are also cooking demonstrations featuring chefs from Seattle and beyond. People can take a boat tour and learn more about the farm. And, for those competitively-inclined, there’s a mussel eating contest. There are also other food vendors throughout Coupeville and shops are open with their own special vibe. If you come on Saturday, come early because the tickets always sell out by noon. Sunday is a bit more laid back, with tickets available online and a special “Heart of Coupeville” ticket also available.
