Chesapeake Crab & Beer Fest
At Chesapeake Crab & Beer Fest, the air is filled with the cracking of crab shells, the uncapping of beer bottles, the popping of wine corks, and the beats of local bands. More than 65,000 crabs are set to be boiled, topped with seasonings, and slathered with butter during the festival, which also offers hearty sides and vegetarian options for sale. Beyond the food, drink, and music, the event also fills tents with arts and handicrafts for sale, as well as with activities for kids and families to enjoy together.
