Celebrate a Maryland Summer This Weekend

Did I tempt you with the thought of more crabs than you can handle? Here are the deets:

Tonight, the Rotary Club of Annapolis holds its 67th Annual Crab Feast at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. It’s a major fundraiser for the organization, and benefits local community and cultural nonprofits. Tickets earn attendees access to all-you-can-east #1 male crabs, Maryland vegetable crab soup, sweet Maryland corn, beer, sodas, and more.

The crab feast kicks off at 5 p.m. and lasts until 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on-site at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium box office at 4 p.m. for $75 for adults and $25 for children.

Tomorrow, the Chesapeake Bayhawks take over the stadium as they battle it out against the Long Island Lizards. The hometown hawks are on a roll going into the game, with our calculations putting them at 9 – 3 in the wins-losses column. The game kicks off at 7 p.m., and tickets can be purchased here.

If you want to get a little history into your weekend, though, head to Historic London Town and Gardens. There, professional archaeologists will invite you to help them search for the lost town of London. An adult must accompany children under 14.

Finish up your Annapolis weekend with the free First Sunday Arts Festival on Calvert and West Streets. Bring your friendly pets, family, and friends to check out roughly 100 artists and craft vendors, enjoy live music and street performers, dine in outdoor cafes, and dance in the streets.

Are you Eastern Shore folks feeling left out? Don’t—there may be a lot going on in Annapolis, but there’s a bunch going on on your side of the Bay too.

Now through the 4th, the Caroline-Dorchester County Fair is taking place at the Caroline County 4H Club. The fair merges two counties into one annual event, and serves as a showcase for agricultural life. Highlights include rides, 4-H exhibits, family activities, live entertainment, contests, and more. Even if you don’t wind up going, at least visit the website. You won’t be sorry.

On Saturday, Betterton invites you to come celebrate its existence with Betterton Appreciation Day. The event is a family-friendly day featuring food, crafts, games, and a parade down Main Street.

Also on Saturday, Mount Harmon Plantation will open its grounds to visitors to the Lotus Blossom Festival. Attendees will delight in seeing the rare American Lotus in full bloom, enjoy local the work of local artisans, and take part in nature and craft activities for the kids, a native plant sale, birding and nature walks, and much more.
