The Maryland Seafood Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 6 and 7, at Sandy Point State Park. This is the 47th annual festival, and it's always a popular event that generates some extra traffic on the western side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
You'll find two dozen food and beverage vendors, ranging from professional caterers and commercial dining establishments to scout troops. But that's not all. There will be a crab soup cook-off, a crab-eating contest, a crab-picking contest, a craft beer & oyster tasting, corn on the cob eating contest, a wine row, and more.
If the food isn't enough to attract you, come for the pogo stick stunt show, the demos by local chefs, or the live music by several bands from mid-day until closing. For kids, there will be a moon bounce, fish-mobile, crab derby, and lots of other activities.
Tickets are just $15 for general admission, $10 for active military and seniors. On-site parking is available only if you pre-purchase the ticket online ($12); otherwise, you'll have to take a shuttle from Anne Arundel Community College ($5).
