From May to December 
In and Around Crisfield


Crisfielders have much to celebrate, from freedom and seafood, especially the Maryland Blue crab, to a rich maritime heritage.


Every summer the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce  hosts two massive events each bringing in thousands of visitors, the Clam Bake, a Maryland political institution, and the Crab Derby, which focuses the nation's attention on the Governor's Cup crab race.

There are many local attractions, including Tangier and Smith Islands, Somers Cove Marina, Janes Island State Park, and the J. Millard Tawes Historical Museum.

"The City of Crisfield, with a population of about 2,700, is synonymous with the blue crab. Self proclaimed as the "Crab Capital of the World," the city has the crab symbol emblazoned on its water towers, street signs, newspaper, town website and even on the Crisfield Police patch (along with a fish and oyster). For more than 300 years, Crisfield has been a waterman's town and the blue crab a symbol of prosperity. Even today, the city's dependence on the Bay's bounty is evident in the waterfront seafood processing plants, seafood distributors, seafood restaurants and work boats that leave Crisfield harbor six days a week."
