The 32nd Annual Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival comes to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5, bringing a collection of small craft to the museum’s Miles River waterfront, along with live music, scenic river cruises, food, beverages, and more. Sailing skiffs, rowing shells, kayaks, canoes, paddleboats, prams and other one-of-a-kind boats will be in the water and on land throughout the weekend. Many will be accompanied by owners sharing their boating knowledge and experiences with festival-goers.
The fundraising gala begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres along the museum’s waterfront, followed by a tented dinner catered by PeachBlossoms Events. The evening culminates with dancing under the stars to the Motown sounds of the XPDs.
"This year's Boating Party commemorates the War of 1812’s final battle—The Battle of New Orleans—where General Andrew Jackson, aided by Privateer Jean Lafitte and his band of pirates, led the outnumbered Americans to victory," commented event Co-Chair, Fred Israel. "The interesting thing is the Treaty of Ghent had been signed two weeks prior to the battle, but the news had not crossed the Atlantic yet."
