The biggest event of the year in downtown Cambridge, Maryland! Come out and enjoy a free street festival with a crab cook-off, music, kids’ activities, a professional crab-picking competition, gallery openings, late shopping, and more. Entry to the festival is free. 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. This outdoor festival happens from 5 to 10pm on Saturday, July 8, on Race and Poplar Streets in Historic Downtown Cambridge, MD. The event happens rain or shine.

Tickets cost $30 in advance and $35 at the door (if available; the Crab Cook-Off is often a sell-out.) Buy tickets online or buy with cash or check through the Dorchester Chamber of Commerce, 410.228.3575.

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. It’s 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 CambridgeMainStreet.com.
