Mussels in March

Poster of a Mermaid holding a trident and mussels are hanging from the trident. It says "Mussels in March."

It’s not Musselfest -
but a celebration of our bold, briny and blue mussels.
Musselfest returns March 5 & 6, 2022.

2021 - It's all about you!

We are looking to do an old fashioned(ish) recipe exchange both on this site and on Facebook.  We're looking for how you do mussels in your own home.

And, if mussels are usually something you reserve for eating out, we want to tell you where you can get Penn Cove Mussels to try at home.

We might not be able to host a big event until '22, but we can remind Whidbey Island Families March is Mussel Month and Coupeville is wide open and ready for visitors!
