Commercial Fisherman Expo and Hotdog Highliners Competition

Sunday, Sept. 7th – in conjunction with Astoria’s Sunday Market, there will be a Commercial Fishing Expo and Hotdog Highliners Competition.
Don’t miss your chance to rub shoulders with the ilk of hard-working men and women that work the waters of the Pacific Graveyard, many of whom also fish the Bering Sea in the industry made famous by Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch.
Entrants must have registered by Sept. 3 in order to compete.
Competitions include the Dover Sole Relay Race, Forklift Coin-flip, and teams made up of three highliner “deckhands” successfully completing a series of tasks such as eating oysters, donning a survival suit, stacking crab pots and knot-tying in order to gain bragging rights and donated prizes.
In addition to these, there will be entertainment in the form of commercial fishing demonstrations, Sea Shanty songs by the Living Historians, fisher poets and
NW Limited…History in VogueTM will be there as a vendor in our usual spot as well as at the Fishing Expo.
Englund Marine, Polk-Riley Printing, Junes Ltd., J&H Boatworks, Jon’s Seafood and Pier 39 are some of the sponsors.
