Maryland Seafood Festival

Mark your calendars on September 8th & 9th for the 51st Annual Maryland Seafood Festival! We’re celebrating over 50 years of food and fun at Sandy Point State Park with a weekend full of delicious seafood dishes, interactive cooking demonstrations, exciting competitions, kids activities and more! While you sample all of our tasty offerings, enjoy all of our maritime related exhibits, contests, and activities. The Maryland Seafood Festival also hosts loads of local shopping and vendor options, a fantastic beverage selection with lots of local craft beer and wine, and tons of kids activities, all hosted along the beautiful shores of the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Looking to help out? We have numerous volunteering opportunities. Please check out our volunteer page to sign up. Parking at Sandy Point will be available only for those who pre-purchase a parking pass. Additional parking is available at Anne Arundel Community College, and there will be shuttles to transport guests from the parking lots to the Maryland Seafood Festival and back again! A portion of the proceeds from the festival go to our local YMCA Camp Letts.
