What You'll Get

Early American revolutionaries converted the Chesapeake Bay into an armory of sorts, fashioning sturdy shields from blue-crab shells and excavating pearly cannonballs from giant oysters nesting in the shallows. Celebrate Mother Nature’s patriotic leanings with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to the Chesapeake Folk Festival on Saturday, July 23 at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in Saint Michaels, Maryland (up to a $30 value). Note that children ages 6–17 are admitted for $6, and children 5 and under enter for free. This Groupon is valid for admission only and does not include food and boat-ride purchases.

On July 23, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s 18 waterfront acres will host a smorgasbord of cultural events for a one-day celebration in honor of the region’s rich farming and maritime traditions. Apart from the museum’s permanent armada of historic watercraft and hands-on exhibits, the festival will feature a dizzying array of live music acts and regional craftspeople peddling knowledge of their esoteric coastal trades. After a morning of decoy-carving demonstrations and nippering for oysters, step into the white boots of a weather-beaten Chesapeake waterman and refuel with a crab pot filled with delectable sea candies or a husk of steamed corn from a local farm. With a focus on how harvesting, marketing, preparing, and sharing food have defined the area's cultural communities, the festival cooks up a profusion of culinary delights that will reintroduce guests of all ages to long-forgotten hunger remedies.

The fourth annual celebration of its kind, the Chesapeake Folk Festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to ensure a full day of bayside frolicking. Guests are invited to explore the museum throughout the day and visit the working boat yard, take a tour around the rotating art exhibits in the Steamboat Gallery, and enjoy a deep breath of briny majesty at the bustling Waterman’s Wharf.
