About Maryland Seafood Festival
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 over 30 of those years, the festival has camped out on Sandy Point State Park’s seaside grounds, where 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 traditions: the Annual Crab Soup Cook-Off. After that, hungry patrons sample local flavors at vendor booths 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 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.
