Event description


Taste, Vote, Play and Enjoy!

Okay Crab Cake Fans. This is the event you have been waiting for. Local Maryland Restaurants and Caterers getting together to fight it out in an effort to bring home the trophy for "Maryland's Top Crab Cake".

And guess who gets to judge the contest? You. That's right, there won't be any judges... they can be bought off. The attendees at the event will sample the crab cakes (and crab soup) and vote for their favorites. Winners will be announced at the Reception and on social media. Let the games begin...

In addition to the 10-15 food and beer stations, there will be 75-80 Exhibitor Booth spaces for local businesses to display/market their products and services during this event. This will be a great opportunity to have your business information on display as attendees walk up and down every aisle to find the next crab cake station or beer vendor.

WARNING: In an effort to not have too many businesses of similar type at the event, only three businesses per business category will be allowed. Only one per specific business. Therefore, book your space early so you don't get edged out by one of your competitors.

Example 1: We may have three insurance companies represented like one State Farm booth, one Nationwide booth and one Allstate booth but we will not have two of the same.

Example 2: We will have one Legal Shield booth, one Seacret booth, one Avon booth, etc.
