Baltimore loves their seafood, that’s for sure! Baltimore also loves all the wonderful local restaurants that truly make this city one of the best places for foodies to live or visit. Why the Baltimore Seafood Festival? Baltimoreans are so proud of their crab cakes, crab soup, shrimp salad, local oysters, and of course, Maryland blue crabs.

Toss in refreshing drinks, live music,cooking demos, and an area for families with toys, games, face painting and more, and you have the Baltimore Seafood Festival – the only large scale seafood festival in Baltimore City.
