Before the widespread popularity of arts-and-crafts festivals, struggling artists resorted to building popsicle-stick shantytowns and even eating their own macaroni sculptures. Celebrate the nation's aesthetes with today's Groupon: for $4, you get one two-day admission to the Annapolis Arts & Crafts Festival (up to an $8 value) June 11–12 at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The Annapolis Arts & Crafts Festival is a venue for the aesthetically curious to peruse carefully juried regional arts and crafts, partake of gourmet cuisine, and absorb live music throughout the weekend. Visitors stroll the brick-lined streets of colonial Annapolis, exploring tent-covered kiosks glittering with the wares of myriad craftsmen and artists. Fine woodworking, custom soaps, and bejeweled heart sweaters dot the art festival's landscape alongside epicurean attractions and monuments plundered from nearby civilizations. The 100-foot gourmet food tent houses libations from eight Maryland wineries, such as Solomon's Island and Elk Run, as well as an ample selection of delectable samples from regional culinary masters.

During the two-day festival, family-friendly entertainment acts fill the air with summertime sweetness. Bridgette's Caribbean-themed tunes pep up lethargic children, and Tom Lagana weaves ethereal art with a jazz guitar greased by Django Reinhard's own pomade.

Annapolis Craft Beer & Music Festival

The Annapolis Craft Beer & Music Festival encourages visitors to BYO. That's not BYOB, mind you (there are more than 100 beer styles here from craft breweries around the country). Instead, visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs—and set them up near the Pilsner stage to listen to live music all day while sipping their samples.

But there's plenty to do at the fest away from the lawn, too. Informational seminars teach all about beer, with sessions that might cover the fundamentals of craft beer or cooking gourmet dishes with it. Until festgoers can get back home and can put those lessons to action, there are plenty of hearty eats to try at the festival grounds.

Venue was excellent and event was well run. Only issue is more food could have been available.
