Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival
On Saturday, August 17, mugs will fill with unlimited tastes of beers by Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, and dozens of other breweries at the Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival. Attendees can purchase crab and other comestibles à la carte, pairing recommended beers with succulent claws from more than 50,000 crabs. Event staff dish out free watermelon slices throughout the day while the music of local and regional bands echoes from the main stage. In response to crowds at previous festivals, organizers have split the event into two sessions and have reduced the number of tickets available, allowing more room to breathe or perform gymnastics floor routines of gratitude.
Tysons Fall Harvest
It may be the inaugural year of Tysons Fall Harvest, but it already has the docket to rival any well-established fall festival. This family-friendly event will keep kids entertained with plenty of activities, from pony rides and petting zoos to a hay maze and pumpkin carving. Those who need to brush up on their carving skills can sit in on demonstrations from master pumpkin carvers or head to the craft corner to paint or just hug a gourd that escaped.
Even without kids in tow, adults will have plenty to do, including visiting the wine and beer garden for unlimited samples when they purchase a tasting glass, as well as shopping a marketplace with pumpkins and fall decor. They might even consider dropping by Rocknoceros's set at the live-music stage; they might be a kids' band, but their acclaim has landed them gigs at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and the Kennedy Center. A portion of the Harvest's proceeds will benefit the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation.
