Enjoy a slice of authentic Dorchester County culture with oyster shucking, log sawing, muskrat skinning, duck calling – and beauty pageants – during the 75th annual National Outdoor Show Feb. 28-29. The event opens Friday evening with a pageant to name Miss Outdoors, followed by the world championship muskrat skinning semi-finals. The event continues on Saturday with Little Miss and Little Mister Outdoors, game cooking demo, venison cooking contest, police K-9 demo, duck and goose calling contests, championship muskrat skinning, and more. You can even taste muskrat prepared the traditional way (Saturday only; while supplies last). This one-of-a-kind event was featured in a PBS documentary, Muskrat Lovely. Adults $8, children ages 3-12, $4. South Dorchester Pre-K-8 School, 3485 Golden Hill Road, Church Creek, Maryland – about 20 miles southwest of Cambridge. More info at
