If you just can’t get enough seafood, at least you can stock up at the 19th annual Bodega Seafood, Art & Wine Festival, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 24-25.

Feast on barbecued oysters, shrimp-stuffed artichokes, Creole-style conch, crabcakes, calamari, clam chowder, salmon, coconut prawns, paella, octopus, swordfish, bacon-wrapped albacore and more. Sip reds and whites from 45 wineries, and taste craft beers from a dozen microbreweries.

Sample (and purchase) purveyors’ gourmet offerings, including olives, spices, baked goods, handmade candies and more.

Check out the arts and crafts by artisans from around California and beyond, along with live music and other entertainment.

The fest will rock from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday on the grounds of sprawling Watts Ranch, 16885 Bodega Highway in the village of Bodega (site of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”).

Admission is $15 at the door, $12 in advance for adults; free for children 12 and younger. For tickets and more information: www.winecountryfestivals.com, (707) 824-8717.
