International Crab Fest Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday feast is always enjoyed on September 14
Grab your crab baskets and head to the seashore. Or, go to the local seafood store for a mess of crabs. Get out the steamer and start boiling the water. Don't forget to melt some butter. .Ps Don't forget the bibs. Today is International Crab Fest Day, and a lot of crabs are steamed about that!
There's two things we know. First, crabs can be found all over the world. Isn't that just wonderful!? Second, crabs are one of the sweetest, most popular of all seafoods. The fact that over 1.5 million tons of crabs are consumed worldwide every year is a testimonial to their culinary popularity. While steaming crabs is the most popular, you can bake, boil, grill, or make it in a wide variety of recipes. In other words, "have it your way!"
There are thousands of varieties of crabs. They range in size from 5 inches across, to over 13 feet! Fishermen have a second reason to celebrate crabs today. They use the little ones to catch lunker bass and other fish. As for the largest varieties, well let's just say they'd make one heck of a crab fest!

History and Origin of International Crab Fest Day:
International Crab Fest was created in 2018 by Bob Matthews, author of Holiday Insights to recognize and celebrate one of the world's most popular seafoods.
A date in September was chosen, as the weather cools in September. Clam and seafood bakes become popular during the late summer to fall season.
