Restaurant Weeks and Food Festivals

From picking crabs at a table to haute cuisine, Maryland has that and everything in between. 

Many communities and their local restaurants sponsor a week-long experience so that you can eat to your heart's content - at a great price. 


In coordination with the Restaurant Association of Maryland
