The Crab Fest Art Show was started in 2000 by the Kodiak artist collective known as Dancing Salmon Artists. Over the years the effort developed into the premiere spring show where Kodiak artists could debut and share new work. Traditionally held in the Kodiak Inn Harbor Room over the Memorial Day weekend, the art show has typically included an opening reception where patrons can meet the artists and learn more about their artistic practice. 

In 2019 The Frame Shop and Kodiak Arts Council assumed organizing responsibilities for the Crab Fest Art Show. The tradition continues, albeit a little differently in 2020.

The 2020 Crab Fest Art Show will go live on Wednesday, August 19, at 10 am.
