  • Local chefs will set up a demonstration kitchen next to the iconic crab sign Oct. 27. The Fisherman's Wharf Community Benefit District will kick off Wharf Fest during a weekend in late October. The free event will celebrate Pier 39's 35th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of Hyde Street Pier's opening to the public.

The event is the first of its kind at Fisherman's Wharf, and will include live music, food and wine tastings, carnival rides, fireworks and more. Special exhibitors will include Wharf merchants, local artists and seafood restaurants.

On Oct. 26, Wharf restaurants will compete in a chowder cook-off and, for a fee, festival attendees can participate in a chowder tasting. On Oct. 27, local chefs will set up a live demonstration kitchen by the Wharf's iconic crab wheel at Jefferson and Taylor streets.

The festival will last from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days, and will extend from Ghirardelli Square to Pier 39. Traffic will be closed off in the area for the weekend.
