A 56-year tradition, the festival has showcased great seafood, live music, arts and crafts, chef demos, and the crab soup cook-off to thousands of festival attendees.

One of the event’s highlights for the past 30 years, the Crab Soup Cook-off, will be back with our local celebrity judges, a people’s choice contest, and over 20 different soups to taste. The Beer and Oyster tent, always a hit, will include oysters from local fisheries and a great place to maybe take in some NFL action. Chef demonstrations will exhibit how to make scrumptious dishes – including best practices for handling invasive species. 

A portion of the proceeds benefit local charities.

The Maryland Seafood Festival is a family-friendly event that is fun for all ages. You can spend a couple of hours, or the entire day. 

Admission is $15 per person in advance or $20 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free. Parking is $10 at the Naval Academy stadium, and there is a free shuttle to the festival.
