Dozens of seafood festivals will be held throughout Maryland this summer and continue through November. Festivals range in size and diversity from St. Mary’s County Oyster Festival in Leonardtown to the 34th Annual Tawes Crab and Clam bake in Crisfield.
“Seafood festivals give residents and visitors the chance to sample a variety of Maryland’s fine seafood products and regional delicacies,” said Agriculture Secretary Buddy Hance. “The list highlights events that benefit a variety of organizations and are sure to delight families with delicious food and activities featuring the history and culture of life on the Chesapeake Bay.”
