Solomons Island Maritime Festival
May 02, 2015
The Solomons Maritime Festival comes alive with the sights, sounds, and smells of Southern Maryland traditions. Taste traditional foods, learn how to pick crabs and shuck oysters like the pros, enjoy local gospel and old time music, hear world class water fowl calling, see Chesapeake Bay retriever trials in action, watch model boats skim the waters of the boat basin, talk with traditional crafts people as they demonstrate their skills. For the kids, there will be traditional games, races, ice cream making, toy boat building and more. As part of the Solomons Maritime Festival, the marine engines and vintage boats will be on display in front of the museum and in the parking lot.
