There’s a lot of things we do right in Annapolis, from preserving places of historical importance to ensuring the Chesapeake Bay stays clean and unspoiled for centuries to come. There’s one thing we do especially well, however, and that is celebrating the sweet treats harvested from those clean waters, and the Maryland Seafood Festival offers all the tasty proof you could ever need! Held the first full weekend in September (the 7th and 8th in 2019) and located at Sandy Point State Park, 1100 East College Parkway, planning an Annapolis getaway during this week will be the most delicious idea you’ve had all year!
More Than Crab Cakes at the Maryland Seafood Festival
Yes, it is true that Maryland is famous for their crab cakes, and yes, you will be able to eat more than your share of these savory treats, but the Maryland festival is about ALL the seafood; there’s no bias here! Crab, oysters, shrimp, fish, even a crab soup cook-off destined to be your favorite part of the festival is planned, so be sure and wear your comfy pants. You’re going to eat a LOT! The festival also offers live music and entertainment, craft booths, kids fun zones, and demonstrations taught by professional chefs that will teach you how to create your own seafood masterpieces in the comfort of your own home—or in the comfort of one of our At Home Annapolis fall escapes. Our kitchens are fully equipped to allow you to create any meal of your choice—just add food!
