J. Millard Tawes Clam Bake
- third Wednesday in July
Held every year on the third Wednesday in July at Somers Cove Marina in Crisfield, this annual celebration is named in honor of Crisfield native, J. Millard Tawes - the 54th Governor of the State of Maryland. This event, listed in Frommers Travel Guides and other national event directories, is described as "an outdoor all-you-can-eat affair featuring crabs, clams, fish, corn on the cob, and watermelon, and in election years, lots of politicians."
Join us for the Crisfield Clam Bake - July 17, 2013
The J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is billed as Maryland's must-attend, see-and-be-seen political institution, equal parts seafood, sweat and schmooze.
The event, hosted by the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce, originated as a fundraiser for the J. Millard Tawes Historical Museum, which is named after the former governor. The museum showcases the Maryland Lower Shore's history. The museum focuses on such regional information as the the Chesapeake Bay's origins and the Native Americans of the region.
Today, the Chamber of Commerce uses the proceeds to fund projects that benefit the Crisfield community -schools, city police and fire departments and more.
