Crab & Beer Festival

Snag Your Tickets Now for the Crab & Beer Festival on Aug. 24

It isn’t summer in Maryland without crabs and beer, right? Head to the Chesapeake Crab, Wine and Beer Festival at National Harbor on Saturday, August 24th to get your fill. For the 10th year in a row, the festival will take over the waterfront at SouthPointe for a day filled with good eats, good drinks, and good company. The festival boasts live music, activities for all ages, over 30 types of beer to sip on from a souvenir mug and of course, tons of tasty crabs with other food options available for purchase if someone in your party isn’t a crab fan.

There are two seatings, one from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for lunch and 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for dinner. You have a choice of grabbing tickets that cover just crabs, just wine and beer, or you can go all out and buy the unlimited package which allows you as much as you’d like throughout the event. Some tickets are almost 80% sold out, so check out your options and purchase your tickets before they’re gone!
