Celebrate the Bay's rich musical heritage, in a festival dedicated to Chesapeake folk music at the Smithsonian Environmental Center in Edgewater, MD
Enjoy songs and storytelling from local bands, while taking in the view from SERC's 18th-century mansion ruins overlooking the Bay. Food, beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Because we're an active research site, sadly we can't accommodate any dogs except service animals. The festival takes place on a hill with a view of the Rhode River and Chesapeake Bay. Visitors are welcome to either walk up to the festival or take a shuttle bus. The event will be held rain or shine; no refunds.
This is a zero-waste event. Composting and recycling are provided. We encourage visitors to bring reusable water bottles and help us keep the festival sustainable!
$20/car online; $30 at the gate. Parking is limited, so we highly recommend advance registration. More info and tickets.
This event is part of the Smithsonian Year of Music, in partnership with the Arundel Rivers Federation. Thanks to all our sponsors!
