Did you visit the inaugural Baltimore Seafood Festival at Canton Waterfront Park last year? If you didn’t, you missed out, but fortunately it was so successful that the sequel is upon us.

If you did visit last year, you’ll be impressed with the exponential increase in offerings in terms of both food and spirits this year.

In addition to the food tents and drinks tables, local bands like 8 Ohms Band and Unity Reggae Band will be on hand, a family-friendly area will be set up, and cooking demos will be available all day. One of our favorites from last year was Jessica Formicola’s (of Savory Experiments) super easy butternut squash soup adorned with huge chunks of lump crab meat.

“The Inaugural Baltimore Seafood Festival was a major success! People traveled from as far south as North Carolina and as far north as Maine,” stated Beth Laverick, President of B Scene Events. “This year, we will be adding an additional restaurant tent due to the event growing in size. This has the potential to become a regional event and a tradition for Baltimoreans, and we are very excited for this year’s festivities.”
