On Saturday, October 6, and Sunday, October 7, 2018, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will host one of the nation’s largest gatherings of small boat enthusiasts and unique watercraft at Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival XXXV.
During the festival, CBMM guests can marvel at the craftsmanship and innovation used in traditional and contemporary small craft while enjoying the museum’s waterfront campus and indoor and outdoor exhibitions. Hundreds of amateur and professional boatbuilders and enthusiasts come from all over the region to display their one-of-a-kind kayaks, canoes, and other traditional small craft.
Sailing skiffs, rowing shells, kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, prams, and one-of-a-kind boats will be on display and in the water throughout this family-oriented event. Small craft owners hailing from all over the country will also be available to share their knowledge and boating experiences with guests.
The festival was previously combined with CBMM’s Maritime Model Expo, which now takes place during CBMM’s free Community Day in May.
Scenic river cruises aboard the 1920 buyboat Winnie Estelle, live music, along with food and beverages will be available to round out the weekend festival.
On Saturday, CBMM Shipyard staff and Chesapeake Wooden Boat Builders School instructors will be on hand to offer boatbuilding workshops and maritime demonstrations. Also beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday will be a lively Miles River race of small craft, which can be viewed from CBMM’s waterfront and docks. Festival-goers can also vote for their favorite boat, with the People’s Choice award and others announced among participants on Saturday evening.
On Sunday, festival-goers are invited to bring nautical items to swap or sell at a traditional swap meet before heading home.
For safety reasons, dogs are not permitted on museum grounds during CBMM festivals, with the exception of certified service dogs. Leashed dogs from boat and land are permitted on CBMM grounds on non-festival days.
The Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival is free for CBMM members and children 5 and under, otherwise admission is good for two consecutive days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $6 for children ages 6 to 17, with all museum exhibitions open throughout the event.

Come one, Come All to the
St. Michaels Farmers Market 20th Birthday Celebration!
St. Michaels, MD – On Saturday, June 30th from 8:30 to 11:30am, the St. Michaels Farmers Market invites everyone to come on over to 204 S. Talbot St. in St. Michaels to join them in celebrating their 20th year of offering fresh, healthy, delicious items from regional farms and local producers to the Bay Hundred community.
The Market will be a busier-than-usual beehive of activity for its 20th birthday with free tastings from guest chefs, including longtime Talbot County resident, Michael Rork; “birthday cake” from Arlene’s Creations; ice cream donated by Justine’s; and a raffle of market baskets full of tasty items donated by vendors.
As always, customers, families and friends are invited to come together to not only shop but also celebrate summer and yummy foods. On the special Market birthday, customers will be treated to music by Cambridge-based band, Blackwater, who will offer their unique repertoire of rock, blues, reggae and bluegrass. With an ever expanding array of original songs, and their own versions of not-so-familiar covers, something new is always on the playlist!
The new leadership for the Market has grown it in several new directions this year. It’s ‘producer-only’ focus—meaning everything sold at the market is grown or produced by the person selling it—makes the St. Michaels Farmers Market a unique asset for the mid-Shore community. This year, they have expanded to include an adjacent lot, allowing for several new vendors, and have made the Market SNAP-friendly so that more people and community can purchase the fresh healthy meats, vegetables and other goods available.
To keep up with the St. Michaels Farmers Market and the celebration, check them out at www.facebook.com/loveyourfarmer.

Guests to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. can see Lady Maryland dockside from Friday, October 20 through Monday, October 23.
Built in 1985 by the Living Classrooms Foundation, Lady Maryland is a replica of a Chesapeake Bay pungy schooner. Pungies were considered fast sailing vessels in the 1800s, and were primarily used as workboats carrying perishable cargo such as oysters, watermelons, tomatoes, fish, peaches, and grain.
Throughout the warmer months, CBMM's marina is host to numerous visiting tall ships and vessels, with on-board programming and dockside tour opportunities. For more information about docking at CBMM, visit cbmm.org or call 410-745-2916. For more about Lady Maryland and the Living Classroom Foundation, go to livingclassrooms.org.
