Our crabs vary in size from medium to x-large and will be offered at 6 crabs at a time, per person. REDUCED ATTENDANCE. We’ve reduced the attendance from last year by 20% to better serve everyone at the show. In addition, we’ve split the event into 2 sessions further reducing the number of people on-site at one time – so the event will seem less crowded by 40% at any given time. TWO SESSIONS. We have broken the show into two 4 hour sessions in order to better accommodate everyone. What this means:
NO LINES FOR CRABS, NO WAITING NO LINES FOR BEER, NO WAITING EACH PERSON WHO ATTENDS WILL HAVE a place to sit and enjoy the afternoon. MORE CRAB STATIONS. Last year, you showed us that we need MORE distribution points for crabs so in addition to reducing the crowd size we are increasing our distribution so that we can handle your orders FASTER. PLEASE NOTE: Crabs will be offered 6 at a time. NEW BIGGER BEER MUGS. We’ve switched our beers from our 5 ounce tasting pilsner to the 14 ounce mug so you can sit and enjoy the day. Enjoy The Heavy Seas Beer Experience ENJOY The “Soon To Be World Famous” Chilled Tequila Tasting Bar. OTHER GREAT FOOD. There is Great Crabs and MORE CRABS and MORE CRABS and even MORE CRABS – but there will be other great food options as well including summer favorites like hot dogs, hamburgers, sausages, pit beef, barbecue and many others options available for purchase. There is no vegetarian options available. LIVE MUSIC on The Main Stage! Enjoy the Sounds of local and regional favorite bands as they rock the waterfront. SPECIAL KIDS AREA AND FAMILY FUN ZONE. Come and enjoy the moon bounces, activity centers and other great options so that the little ones c an come out and enjoy too. THOUSANDS OF TABLES AND CHAIRS AND HUGE TENTS for crackin’ to your heart’s content undercover with the beautiful summer breezes from the water. We’ve even ordered enough crab paper to stretch all the way across The Potomac and back. ALL SHOW FEATURES are undercover- so Rain or Shine- you should be fine.
