Concours d’ Elegance returns home to St. Michaels September 24th - 26th

After three years in Cambridge, the St. Michaels Concours d’ Elegance is returning home, with its 10th anniversary celebration to be held on Sunday, September 25, along Fogg’s Landing at the waterfront Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

The St. Michaels Concours d’ Elegance was founded in 2007 and originally took place on the waterside lawn of the Inn at Perry Cabin. This year’s event will benefit the construction of the new Classic Motor Museum of St. Michaels.

“We are excited to bring the Concours home. The alliance with the new Classic Motor Museum is a natural fit,” said George M. Walish Jr., founding chairman. “It is our mutual objective to position St. Michaels as the classic car destination of the Mid-Atlantic region.”

The show field on September 25 will feature rare, pre-war (1900-1942) European and American coach-built automobiles, as well as significantly important post-war (1946-1966) sports cars. A special class of previous Best in Show winners has been created and will be joined by the Senior Award Winning Automobiles from Concours events throughout the country, including Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, and Radnor Hunt.

In the tradition of the historic Concours events held in Paris, the exhibit of automobiles will be complemented by an elegant fashion show. An additional display of classic wooden speed boats, around CBMM’s 18 waterfront acres along the Miles River and St. Michaels harbor, will enhance the mood of stepping back in time.

"We are delighted to have the Concours return to St. Michaels and CBMM," said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. "Hosting the event is all part of our commitment to the larger community and bringing our guests a delightful day of antique cars and beautiful waterfront."
Advanced tickets can be purchased online at $40 at General admission tickets are otherwise $50 at the door. Advanced VIP tickets are available online at $100, which include lunch and Entrants Lounge access. Details for a Saturday, September 24 fundraising dinner will be announced at a later date.

During the event, Boating Party guests will have the opportunity for exclusive tours and photo opportunities with America’s captain and crew while enjoying cocktails. America will also be at CBMM on other select dates in September, with the general public offered dockside tours and pre-booked private and public cruises during regular museum hours, with dates and more information at

Shakespeare in the Park returns to St. Michaels September 10th, 2016

Shakespeare in the Park returns to St. Michaels thanks to the St. Michaels Art League and the Brown Box Theatre Project of Boston, who are partnering again this year to bring the the lighthearted Shakespeare comedy, Cymbeline, to Muskrat Park in St. Michaels on Friday, September 10th, starting at 7:30pm for a free performance. 

Brown Box Theatre Project is thrilled to produce Cymbeline as their sixth annual outdoor Shakespeare production this September.   A theatrical feast, William Shakespeare’s Cymbeline delicately blends tragedy, comedy, and romance into an enchanting and unforgettable fairy tale. When Imogen’s father banishes her soul­mate, the princess must embark on a quest to prove her fidelity, escape her stepmother’s dastardly plot, and reclaim her love. Cymbeline is brimming with forbidden romance, mistaken identities, jealousy, vile trickery, poison, disguises, and epic swordfights. 

Director Kyler Taustin explains, Cymbeline, one of Shakespeare’s rarely produced works, is an alluring amalgamation of romance, ferocity, intrigue, and fancy, all encompassed in one ‘hidden gem’ of a play. Its focus on patriotism, loyalty, trust, and honor is incredibly timely in our current social and political climate, and I am eager to use this play to explore the ways in which pride and ego can blind even the most noble individuals and result in ruinous consequences within families, countries,and even oneself.”

Brown Box Theatre Project was founded in 2009 by Kyler Taustin to fill a void in the fine arts landscape of his home region, the Eastern Shore of Maryland. While Ocean City and surrounding areas had no lack of tourist attractions, there were few sources for professional theatre anywhere on the Delmarva Peninsula. Taustin, a graduate of Emerson College's theatre directing program, decided to change that by producing high quality theatre in major cities and touring those productions to Ocean City and other communities lacking access to the performing arts.

The Brown Box Theatre Project ( have performed free to the public as part of their ongoing initiative to create theatrical experiences that entertain and excite audiences in communities with limited access to live theater.

Cymbeline Plot:
“What is it to be false?”

When Imogen's father banishes her soul-mate, the princess must embark on a quest to prove her fidelity, escape her stepmother's dastardly plot, and reclaim her love. Cymbeline, King of Britain is brimming with forbidden romance, mistaken identities, jealousy, vile trickery, poison, disguises, and epic sword fights. A theatrical feast that defies genre lines, Cymbeline delicately blends tragedy, comedy, and romance into an enchanting and unforgettable Shakespearean fairytale.

Watermen's Appreciation Day Sunday August 14th

The Talbot Watermen’s Association is bringing the 7th Annual Watermen’s Appreciation Day to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. and the Miles River on Sunday, August 14, 2016. The event is a joint fundraiser for both organizations.
The “watermen’s rodeo” boat docking contest returns to Navy Point, near the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse. Bleacher seating will be provided for spectators to the contest.
Steamed crabs, beer, and other foods and beverages will be available for purchase. The event is hosted by TWA in cooperation with CBMM, with proceeds benefiting both organizations. The pricing for steamed crabs will be set by July 24, and will be announced at that time on CBMM’s website.
Watermen’s Day also offers the public the rare opportunity to see and board a collection of historic buyboats from around the mid-Atlantic region along CBMM’s docks and waterways, as CBMM hosts the 12th Annual Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Association’s reunion.
These unique craft were used to haul seafood and cargo along the Chesapeake Bay’s waterways before many of the peninsulas were connected by bridges. As the seafood harvest declined and highways became the mode of travel the large graceful buyboats faded from local waters. Today, no more than 30 of the oyster buyboats remain on the Bay. Buyboats at CBMM during Watermen’s Day include F.D Crockett, Nellie Crockett, Thomas J., Prop Wash, East Hampton, 55th Virginia, Iva W., Old Point, and Winnie Estelle.
Beginning at 11 a.m., watch the spirited boat docking contest along Navy Point. Children’s on-the-water activities include a Pot Pie skiff rowing competition, with prizes awarded.
Starting at noon, the classic rock, country, and blues sounds of Bird Dog and the Road Kings will have people tapping their toes and dancing along the museum’s waterfront as the region’s favorite band plays live from the historic Tolchester Beach Bandstand. Also beginning at noon, the day’s catch of steamed crabs—served by watermen—will be available for purchase, in addition to beer, water, soda, hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream, and more.
Children and families can enjoy games and activities throughout the day, including competing in an anchor toss, line baiting, or a rowboat racing contest. Scenic river cruises aboard the museum’s 1920 buyboat, Winnie Estelle, will take festival-goers out on the Miles River throughout the day.
Bids can be placed on a number of silent auction items, including work by noted Chesapeake artist Marc Castelli. Silent auction bids can be made up until 4:30 p.m., with proceeds supporting the Talbot Watermen’s Association.
Throughout the day, festival-goers can get an up-close view of the museum’s floating fleet of historic Chesapeake vessels, along with a selection of working watermen’s boats. Festival admission also includes entrance to CBMM’s permanent and temporary exhibitions, including the temporary Waterfowling exhibition, Chesapeake Camo, Ammo, & Calls, and full access to the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse.

Josh Harris and Casey McManus from television's Deadliest Catch - F/V Cornelia Marie will be joining the talbot watermen and Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in the Town of St. Michaels, Maryland for Watermen's Appreciation Day & Buyboat Reunion is August 14 in St. Michaels, MD. Get your tickets now at . Crab pricing soon to be announced. Stay tuned. 

“Watermen’s Day is an annual favorite among locals and guests alike,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “You can meet many of the watermen who work to bring seafood to tables across the region, while having a great time celebrating the Chesapeake in such an incredibly authentic way.”
Admission to the 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. event will be collected at the gate the day of the event and includes the boat docking contest, celebrity appearances, and the Bird Dog and the Road Kings performance at $18 for adults, and $8 for children 6-17, with all children under six years of age admitted free. Museum members along with licensed watermen and their families get discounted admission at $10 per adult, and $6 per children ages 6-17. Boat rides, steamed crabs, beer, and additional food and beverages will be available for purchase.
All event parking will be available at St. Michaels High School, with free shuttle service to the museum running throughout the day.

Chautauqua Summer Series returns to St. Michaels July 11-13

Chautauqua Summer Series returns to St. Michaels July 11-13

On the evenings of July 11-13, the 22nd annual Chautauqua Summer Series brings three live performances to the waterfront campus of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. This year’s Maryland Humanities’ series features Pulitzer Prize winners Duke Ellington, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Ernest Hemingway, with all living history performances taking place from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. along the Miles River, and offered free and open to the public.

The 2016 Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM is generously sponsored by Easton Eye Care and Karen and Langley Shook, and is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council, Talbot County, and the Towns of Easton, Oxford and St Michaels.

“Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light.” With these words, American publisher Joseph Pulitzer articulated a set of standards that inspire journalists, writers, artists, and musicians in their creative endeavors.

This year's Masters of their Craft theme commemorates the centennial of the Pulitzer Prizes by featuring three Pulitzer winners on the Chautauqua stage.  On Monday, July 11, Baltimore vocalist, pianist, and actor Tevin Brown will portray Duke Ellington, the incomparable showman, and one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century with a career that spanned over fifty years. On Tuesday, July 12, educator and actress Dorothy Mains Prince will portray Gwendolyn Brooks, the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize capturing the black experience in America through her poetry. On Wednesday, July 13, the series wraps up in St. Michaels with Hemingway on Stage author and actor Brian Gordon Sinclair portraying Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest American literary figures of the twentieth century whose work continues to influence modern literature with his trademark style of simple yet perceptive prose.

A Chautauqua performance is a historical dramatization featuring individuals who are part scholar and part actor. Each performance is broken into three acts, where the performer represents a historical figure in the first person, then invites audience questions; and in the final act, steps out of character to answer questions that the historical figure could not have been able to answer.

“Chautauqua” was the name for the Chautauqua Lake area in upstate New York, where the movement began in 1874 as a Methodist summer retreat. A wide range of religious lectures and educational programs attracted a huge following. As it evolved, the Chautauqua movement presented the latest in thinking in politics, economics, literature, science, and religion. Maryland Humanities launched the modern Chautauqua program in Maryland in 1995. 

The Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM is free and open to the public, with guests encouraged to bring chairs and blankets for seating. All performances are held on the lawn of Fogg’s Landing, near the museum’s Steamboat Building. In the event of rain, performances will be held in the Van Lennep Auditorium, with space limited. No registration is required.

For more information, visit or call 410-745-2916. Additional information about the Chautauqua Summer Series can be found at

St. Michaels Brewfest to be held Saturday, June 4th

By Land and Sea, St Michaels Brewfest 2016 offers a Delicious and Educational Event!
The 3rd annual St. Michaels Brewfest scheduled for June 4, 2016 is not only a great place to taste an amazing variety of local craft beers, but is a fun way to experience the heritage and tradition of St. Michaels, MD and maybe even learn a thing or two!  

Buying a ticket gets the purchaser into several different venues that are on an easy walking trail designed to enable visitors to enjoy the town during the day. Partnering this year are the waterfront venues of Foxy’s Harbour Grille, Town Dock Restaurant, and the famous St. Michaels Crab Claw in addition to the working Eastern Shore Brewery. 

The Crab Claw dates back over half a century and the Brewery is located in the lovingly restored Mill property on Talbot Street.  Along the walking path between each venue, visitors will be treated to views of historic homes and gardens, museums, and fantastic water views of the Miles River. The back streets of this town that dates to the late 1700’s are a little-known gem to most visitors and walking throughout the day is a great way to get a feel for this town that began hundreds of years ago as a busy maritime seaport.

Adrian Moritz, owner of Eastern Shore Brewing Co.  states, “If you’ve been to another beer festival, you’ll figure out pretty quickly this is unlike any other.” Close to one hundred  beers have been carefully selected and featured in the festival and many of the brewery owners and Brew Masters will be on hand to discuss their craft in detail. Many participants choose to spend the weekend and dig into the seafaring culture and fine cuisine featuring locally processed crabs and oysters.

For even more delectable education, VIP ticket holders will be treated to an hour long cruise on the Miles River aboard the Patriot Cruise boat. The host on the Patriot will be Hugh Sisson, founder of Heavy Seas Beer in Baltimore, along with Heavy Seas Brewmaster Christopher Leonard. They will be available to answer questions about how the microbrew industry has evolved over the years and will offer special samples of special small-batch brews not available to the public.

On hand this year will also be a variety of Firkins, or cask, beers, which are fresh, small batch brews that are completely unique and must be consumed at time of “uncorking” - creating a lively atmosphere for the guests. This traditional method of serving beer that has not been filtered, pasteurized, or carbonated goes back centuries before our modern draught beer was invented for shipping and preservation purposes. 
RAR Brewing, Devil’s Backbone, Eastern Shore and Evolution are among a sample of the breweries offering firkins.

Each of the past two Brewfests have sold out. The Brew Fest committee expects the same this year. They believe that the teamwork and cooperation between the festival and the town has a lot to do with the successful event. Community partners that are involved to make the event safe as well as entertaining include the St. Michaels Rotary, which will man “Hydration Stations” at each venue sponsored by Check Yourself Talbot and Comfort Keepers of the Eastern Shore.

“We applaud the Brew Fest organizers for their commitment to alcohol responsibility and are excited to again partner for the third year,” said Beth Williams, Check Yourself Talbot chairwoman. “The inaugural Brew Fest marked the first time our coalition participated in an event, and the response proved overwhelmingly positive! We handed out hundreds of waters and snacks, and had so many participants thank us for being there.
“This year, we’re bringing more than 2,000 waters to keep everyone hydrated. We look forward to another great festival and greatly appreciate the organizers for their continued effort toward hosting a safe – and fun – event.”
