If you find yourself lacking plans this weekend, travel over to Cambridge, Maryland for the annual Taste of Cambridge CRAB COOK-OFF & Fun Street Festival! 

We are so excited for the 13th Annual Taste of Cambridge Crab Cook-off and Street Festival!

The event is this Saturday July 14th from 5:00pm – 10:00pm and the price of tickets range from $30.00 – $35.00 for pre-bought and day-off purchases. This may seem like a lot, but we guarantee it is so worth it!

Purchasing a ticket allows guests to try 11 different local restaurant specialty crab dishes then  vote for your favorite! Tickets are only available online through July 11th, otherwise you will have to buy them at the event, and the price will raise to $35.00. Make sure to purchase them ahead of time so you don’t miss out!

If you aren’t interested in the crab dishes, don’t worry – we will only judge you a little! Fear not though, you can still have a ton of fun in Downtown Cambridge as many restaurants will have other samples to try! There will also be local artists performing live music and dance routines.

Make sure you sign your kiddos up for the watermelon eating contest and the hula hoop contest! Some of the Snag staff are itching to participate in those (i.e. Me).

This event is fun for everyone and I definitely recommend going, as someone who has been for years, I can vouch for the excitement! Among the friendly locals, the good food, and great atmosphere, you’ll have a phenomenal time in Cambridge this Saturday!
