Plan to go to the beach it was really hot. Vibe with an empty stomach. Costas Inn had the best crab cakes there.

Bring your beach gear. You can also swim and enjoy the beach as well as eat seafood all day. Oh yeah, the bands were great too.

Transportation on the shuttle from the college was easy, and there were plenty of buses. Many food and craft vendors as well as events going on.

Cheaper parking at the college and you can take a shuttle. Don't forget to bring your bathing suite for the beach.

It's right on the water in the State park-- bring your bathing suit (and watch volleyball; with live music)!

It was a fun festival but the restrooms were horrendous. You are better off not drinking any liquids if possible!

From Our Editors

Despite its food-centric name, the Maryland Seafood Festival casts a wide net over Chesapeake Bay culture, capturing the essence of the area’s music, art, sports, and cuisine in an annual celebration that has endured since 1967. For 30 of those years, the festival has camped out on Sandy Point State Park’s seaside grounds, where, like the mattress of a giant, the event sprawls across a space the size of nearly three football fields. On Saturday, the festivities kick off with one of the event’s two traditions: the Annual Crab Soup Cook-Off followed by the Maryland Fishing Challenge the next day. After that, hungry patrons can sample local flavors at vendor booths by Jimmy's Famous Seafood, Laughing Crab, Costas Inn, Dish and Design Catering and the Boy Scout Troop 278 among many others, or visit chef demos where pros impart tips on preparing dishes such as blackened snakehead and oyster shooters. Local artisans also fill festival tents, selling colorful wares that range from jewelry to furniture. A lineup of live music will soundtrack the event through most of the weekend, helping kids bop to the beat in bouncy houses while adults sample imported and craft beers from local brewers.
