Congratulations to the 2017 winners and Thank You to all of the participants. Please visit the 2017 Winners page to see the list of restaurants and make sure to visit all of them to try a whole crab cake or whole bowl of soup instead of just a sample. Enjoy!
Okay Crab Cake Fans. This is the event you have been waiting for. Local Maryland Restaurants and Caterers getting together to fight it out in an effort to bring home the trophy for "Maryland's Top Crab Cake".
And guess who gets to judge the contest? You. That's right, there won't be any judges... they can be bought off. The attendees at the event will sample the crab cakes (and crab soup) and vote for their favorites. Winners will be announced at the Reception and on social media. Let the games begin...

Why are you still reading? Purchase your tickets already. It's dinner, drinks and a show for $20 (or as little as $10 in groups of 10 tickets).
In addition to the 10-15 food and beer stations, there will be 60-70 Exhibitor Booth spaces for local businesses to display/market their products and services during this event. This will be a great opportunity to have your business information on display as attendees walk up and down every aisle to find the next crab cake station or beer vendor.
WARNING: In an effort to not have too many businesses of similar type at the event, only three businesses per business category will be allowed. Only one per specific business. Therefore, book your space early so you don't get edged out by one of your competitors.
Example 1: We may have three insurance companies represented like one State Farm booth, one Nationwide booth and one Allstate booth but we will not have two of the same or a 4th P&C Insurance Company.
Example 2: We will have one Scentsy booth, one Thirty One booth, one Avon booth, etc.
