The 2023 Maryland Seafood Festival came a little earlier this year than in years past, and at a different location. What remained the same though, was the fun, the food, and the festive atmosphere that have kept crowds coming for 57 years! This year, the festival moved from its traditional location, and came to City Dock in Annapolis, just a stone's throw from the Naval Academy and the State House. Crowds were literally lining up at the gate, which was directly in front of the Patient First tent bringing each and every one of the thousands of ticket holders past our booth. We had scores of great conversations with people from all over the Delmarva region, who thanked us for the service we provided them, and loved how clean and organized the centers were. We also had quite a few people from western Maryland, the eastern shore, North Carolina and New York, who while unfamiliar with what we do, were very interested in having us expand into their hometowns. In addition to over a dozen seafood trucks, vendors, and craft beer tents, there were also a number of fantastic live bands performing, a crab soup competition, an oyster shucking contest, and an inflatable playground for the kids. Add to all that the fact that the weather was picture perfect, and you have the makings of a great summer festival weekend-- one we can't wait to come back to next year, as well!
