October 6, 2018 at the South Noyo Headlands Park
If you enjoyed the World Championship Abalone Cook-off you will not want to miss MAPA’s new event. We have always taken pride in providing a unique and rewarding experience at the Abalone cook-off, and we will be putting that pride into our new event, The Mendocino Ocean and Seafood Fair.
Now at South Noyo Headlands Park, still on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend (10/6/18); still with Great Food, Wine, Beer, Music, Silent Auction and Craft Fair. Seafood recipes will be on the tasting menu, with an emphasis on sustainability: farm raised abalone, locally caught rock fish, uni (sea urchin), sea weed and other surprises. We will be creating a carnival, fun fair, atmosphere in the Noyo Headlands Park.
Your MAPA membership allows you to purchase advance discount vouchers**. Nonmembers can purchase vouchers after July 1st. At the event your vouchers will be exchanged for a strip of ten (10) fair tickets to spend as you choose for seafood tastes, drink, Fair T-shirts, games and more. Come early to get the best selection! A limited number of Fair tickets will be printed to ensure that everyone gets to taste a selection of recipes and enjoy the Fair. The Fair will not sell out, but the Fair tickets could. To purchase member discounted tickets you will need to have your MAPA membership number or “discount code”. Ticket vouchers are available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3465145
