Oceans Shores 11th Annual Razor Clam Festival @ Ocean Shores Convention Center
Mar 18 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
Oceans Shores 11th Annual Razor Clam Festival @ Ocean Shores Convention Center | Ocean Shores | Washington | United States

This festival is dedicated to all things “razor clam.” The razor clam chowder restaurant contest is perhaps the most popular of the festival events. The judging is done by both the public and by professional chefs. The amateur razor clam chowder cook-off draws dozens of folks showing their “razor clam chowder” skills and is judged by professional chefs as well as 2016 amateur winners, in this case a team including Tyson and Annelise Diers from NewCastle and Nick and Katie Harmston. Visitors are likely to be able to taste some other restaurant seafood specialties as well. Wine and food pairing demonstrations was also very popular last year and likely to be very busy again. This year, there will be cooking demonstrations on the Main Stage to peak your interest. Tickets will be for sale to enjoy “Foods From Around the World” and wine during the demonstrations.

For those visiting that like shopping to go with their food tasting, nearly six dozen vendors will offer everything from jams and jelly to jewelry and lamps and more. Pirates providing treasures for adults and kids alike are always a hit with the visitors. Games for the kids at the festival always make for great memories.

Mar 18 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

People in the Northwest have reported encounters with Sasquatch for hundreds of years. There are footprint casts and eyewitness accounts, some from the earliest Northwestern inhabitants. With all this “evidence,” however, researchers have failed to scientifically prove the creature’s existence.

Author David George Gordon will discuss the data, the scientific method, and the possibilities that Sasquatch exists at the Amanda Park Timberland Library, Saturday, March 18 from 2-3 p.m.

Family Film: Iron Giant @ 7th Street Theatre
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm

“The Iron Giant” is one of those rare animated features that offers plenty of fun and action to keep the kids entertained, wrapped around engaging characters and a story with a strong message.

Made in 1999, and based on a story by the British poet laureate Ted Hughes, the film takes place at the height of the Cold War and Sputnik-inspired anxieties and is loaded with period references to alarm over the Soviet threat and grade-B sci-fi and monster movies of the era.

The “iron giant” is a robot that drops from the sky and frightens a small town, setting off an overly zealous government agent. With the unlikely friendship of a lonely boy, the robot learns about humans and ultimately the duo helps the townspeople overcome their prejudices and fears.

Advance tickets are available at Harbor Drug and Crown Drug in Hoquiam, City Drug in Aberdeen and at the website, www.7thstreettheatre.com.

History Talk: The Evergreen State in World War I @ Westport Timberland Library
Mar 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Historian Lorraine McConaghy will begin the program with an illustrated introduction to the war’s themes. Following that, guests may participate in a scripted “Readers’ Theater,” designed to portray the turmoil of the years 1914 – 1919.  The script is drawn from first-person sources such as letters, diaries and news paper stories. It allows modern readers to speak aloud the words of a past generation, and gain an sense of how Washingtonians of that era experienced the great social, economic and political changes: industrialization, immigration, women’s rights, radical labor, epidemic disease, and worldwide turmoil.
