Postponed – Taste of Cambridge Crab Cook-Off & Festival

July 11, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We are not able to hold a traditional Taste of Cambridge July 11th as planned due to COVID-19 in 2020.

We may try to reschedule an adapted smaller version or virtual version for this fall depending on COVID-19 conditions, State of Maryland Executive Orders, and the recommendations of our local Health Department.

Saturday, July 11th 2020
5pm til 10pm
500 blk Poplar / 400 blk Race Streets

Sample crab dishes, and more, from Dorchester County restaurants! Five categories of crab dishes include Crab cake, crab dip, crab soup, crab specialty, and in 2019 the first ever Snakehead Fish cook-off! Sample then select the best crab dish in each category. Return your ballot to us and we count them up and announce the winner in each category, plus an overall winner!

A separate panel of culinary judge’s complete their own separate blind tasting of each dish an award their Judge’s Choice winner at the event.

The festival is free to enter, but you must have a ticket to taste all the crab dishes.

Taste. Decide. VOTE!

Tickets go on sale April 2020.

This is a rain or shine event. Tickets once purchased are not refundable.
