Annapolis Crab Feast


Save the Date!
The 79th annual Rotary Club of Annapolis Crab Feast will be held on
FRIDAY, August 2nd, 2024
5 pm-8 pm, at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. 




Held rain or shine since 1946, the Annual Rotary Crab Feast is one of the longest-running and most popular summertime traditions in Annapolis!

Known as “the world’s largest crab feast,” the all-you-can-eat (and drink) event invites folks from near and far to get their fill of Maryland’s famous blue crabs – plus Maryland vegetable crab soup, sweet Maryland corn on the cob, beef barbeque sandwiches, all-American hot dogs, watermelon, draft beer, and assorted sodas and water – at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium each August.

The Rotary Club of Annapolis directs 100% of proceeds from the event to the local community and cultural nonprofit organizations through grants of up to $4,000. Plus, the organization works with Annapolis Green, a local environmental group, to keep the Feast “zero-waste” by collecting and turning roughly 20,000 pounds of crab shells, corn cobs, watermelon rinds, plates, cups, cutlery, and napkins into “Christmas Crab Compost” that is sold to the public each December. 


Volunteers package up crabs to go

Nearly 2,500 people gather for an evening of socializing while consuming roughly 320 bushels of crabs, 3,400 ears of corn, 100 gallons of crab soup, 1,800 hot dogs, 150 pounds of beef barbeque, and hundreds of gallons of soft drinks and beer.
