The Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival returns to Baltimore’s waterfront on June 24th! The festival is an “all-you-care-to-taste” extravaganza with over 30,000 crabs, beer, arts and crafts, live music, family fun, and much more. Access to the Festival is FREE for all.

Festivalgoers of all ages can enjoy harbor views from Rash Field while checking out seafood vendors, listening to live entertainment, and shopping the art booths. There will be no shortage of tables, chairs, and tents to kick back and get crackin’! 

The event is under cover and is rain or shine. Two sessions are offered: one from 11 AM  – 3 PM and one from 5 PM – 9 PM. A portion of event proceeds go to Spirit of Hope Children’s Foundation.

{If you’re really wanting to make a “crabby” day of it, register to run the Charm City Crab Run at 9:30 AM!}

Driving to the event? We definitely recommend Parking Panda. Don’t forget the swimsuits so the kids can splash in the Sondheim Fountain at nearby West Shore Park after you’ve finished tasting!
