Sausalito’s Community Boating Center made great strides constructing an accessible, affordable marina in 2020 and is preparing to open in 2021. To celebrate, they’re staging a night full of sea shanties, fishy stories, raffle prizes and a silent auction in addition to cooking and mixology demos.

Hosted by CBS News Bay Area’s Jan Wahl, the festival will be presented online so everyone can safely join from home. The 8th Annual Herring Festival will feature some favorite herring dishes and long-time locals with cooking demonstrations and great storytelling.  Join the executive chefs of Sausalito‘s FISH restaurant, Osteria DiVino, Angelino’s and the entertaining David Robert Johnson of Davey Jones Deli and mixologists from Hanson of Sonoma Distillery for a festive evening, completely with live sea shanty music by the Fishwives.
