What began as a small celebration of local culture, art, people, history and music has grown into a popular, fun filled multi-day event; and it’s happening at the Charleston Marina the first weekend in October. This growing community festival raises funds for the Charleston Food Pantry and the Charleston Marine Life Science Center.
The Tuna Guys will be offering a special $25 tuna dinner deal for families or $10/person for individuals all afternoon! Kids hot dog meals are available for $5. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Charleston Food Bank. Check out the legendary Tuna Guys in this 2014 Oregon Coast Digest interview.
