Crab Feast

Each year, hundreds of WVU Alumni and friends turn out for the annual NCAC WVU Crab Feast. This will be our 44th Crab Feast! Event is rain or shine.

Get ready to indulge in the flavors of summer and the spirit of Mountaineer camaraderie at the 44th Annual National Capital Area Chapter’s Crab Feast! 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 24th, as we gather to celebrate with fellow Mountaineers, campus VIPs, friends, and family. Join us for an afternoon filled with the savory delights of blue crabs, chicken wings, hot dogs, steamed shrimp, and an array of beverages including draft beer, wine, soda, and water. Don’t forget to save room for all the chips and cookies too!

In addition to indulging in delicious fare, there will be plenty of excitement with a scholarship benefit, silent auction, and more. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!

Come join us as we roll out the carpet and bring back the beloved tradition of the Crab Feast.
