Mark your calendars on September 9 and 10 for the 50th annual Maryland Seafood Festival. Celebrate 50 years of food and fun at Sandy Point State Park in Annapolis with a weekend full of delicious seafood dishes, interactive cooking demonstrations, exciting cook-off competitions, kids activities and fireworks.

Currently scheduled to appear – pending approval – is Jimmy Riffle of Animal Planet’s “Gator Boys,” with his traveling road show “Scales, Tails and Teeth.”

While sampling tasty offerings, guests can enjoy maritime-related exhibits, contests and activities. The Maryland Seafood Festival also hosts loads of local shopping and vendor options, a fantastic beverage selection with local craft beer and wine, and tons of kids activities, all hosted along the beautiful shores of the scenic Chesapeake Bay.

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 YMCA Camp Letts in Edgewater. For more information, find “Maryland Seafood Festival” on Facebook or visit
