Members of the San Francisco 49ers team up with local chefs to demonstrate the art and intricacies of cracking a crab at Union Square in San Francisco. The noon-time demonstration will be followed by a timed crab cracking and cleaning contest to see who can clean the most crab.
For a minimal sampling fee, local restaurants will provide tastes of the city’s beloved Dungeness and patrons can sample beer and wine at the Wine & Beer Garden. Admission is FREE. Tickets for food, beer and wine tastings are $5 each or 6 for $25. Tickets can be bought the day of the event at a designated ticket booth - cash only.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the San Francisco 49ers Foundation which supports development programs for underserved youth that keep them safe, on track and in school. A significant portion of its funding goes towards family violence prevention programs and activities that teach youth leadership and respect.
