As a way of saying thank you to the regional community, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. is hosting its second free Community Day, with all festivities taking place on CBMM’s Fogg’s Landing, and including free admission for everyone, plus live music, regional foods and drinks, family activities, free boat rides, and more. Highlights for this year’s event include the opportunity to see the schooner Sultana dockside, along with numerous family activities and special exhibitions.

Live music includes bluegrass, country, Americana classic rock, reggae, fiddle tunes, and more. CBMM’s Model Sailing Club will hold a radio-controlled skipjack regatta and afterwards, festival-goers will have the opportunity to try their hand at operating the radio-controlled boats. While enjoying the festivities, Community Day guests can enjoy a climb to the top of the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, talk with shipwrights and apprentices engaged in wooden boatbuilding and restoration in the boatyard, and explore any of CBMM’s 12 exhibition buildings and historic structures. Throughout the day, Community Day guests can take free scenic river cruises aboard a number of CBMM’s historic vessels, including the 1920 buyboat Winnie Estelle, or get out on the water rowing or sailing aboard one of CBMM’s small craft. All boat rides are offered free of charge for this event.
