After you’ve enjoyed a beautiful walk along the Coastal Trail, or participated in the 32nd Annual Whale Run & Walk, you can look forward to relaxing in a cozy indoor setting, to celebrate with family and friends. These events are also a great opportunity for locals and visitors to meet and enjoy friendly conversations, while noshing on the all-you-can-eat seafood  chowder — and you can vote for your favorite, from among the excellent locally prepared selections!

You can save $5 off of the wine tasting if you purchase advance tickets online. You can also buy tickets at the Mendocino Coast Chamber of Commerce offices, at 217 S. Main St., Fort Bragg,  or by calling 1-707-961-6300.  You can visit their Whale Festival web site for more information. An overview of the entire Fort Bragg Whale Festival is here.
