Purchase a ticket to taste all entries in the Crab Cook-Off competition that has local top chefs competing in categories of best crab cake, crab soup, crab dip, and crab specialty dish – and then cast your vote for your favorites. Participating restaurants include Water’s Edge Grill, Blue Point Provision Co., Palm Beach Willies, Ocean Odyssey, The Cambridge Yacht Club, Katie Mae’s Country Restaurant, RAR Brewing, Jimmie and Sook’s, The High Spot, Rock Lobstah, Lil’ Bitta Bull and Theodore’s Subs and Small Plates.
It’s recommended to buy tickets for the Crab Cook-Off in advance because it often sells out. Before July 1, tickets cost $25 per person. Between July 1 and 10, tickets cost $30. Tickets the day of the event cost $35 (based on availability). Buy tickets.
If you don’t care to take part in the Crab Cook-Off, there will be plenty of food vendors, and local restaurants will be open. Enjoy live music by Arty Hill and the Long Gone Daddys, John Enders, Anna Burgess, and Before Your Time. July 14 is also Second Saturday, so shops and art galleries will be open into the evening with specials and free receptions. Taste of Cambridge runs from 5-10pm. Details at DowntownCambridge.org.
