Crab Feast

Each year, hundreds of WVU Alumni and friends turn out for the annual NCAC WVU Crab Feast. This will be our 43rd Crab Feast! Event is rain or shine.

You’ve waited long enough. We’re ready to welcome you back…the scent of Old Bay elbows its way past hamburgers grilling, there’s more gold and blue moving about than a day’s worth of PRT runs, suddenly a “Let’s Go!” pierces the August day as we’ve rolled out the carpet and brought the return of the National Capital Area Chapter’s Crab Feast! 

On Saturday, August 26, join Mountaineers from around the area, campus VIPs, friends and family for an afternoon of blue crabs, chicken wings and hot dogs, steamed shrimp, draft beer, wine, soda, water and all the chips and cookies. There’ll be a scholarship benefit, silent auction, and more!

Proceeds from tickets sales support a variety of scholarship opportunities for DC-area students attending WVU.
