Looking for something to do this weekend? Maryland is a Land of Excitement with history, music, art and food. As the state nears the 200th anniversary of the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner, hear the echo of the drums and cannon fire at Defenders Day at North Point. Hear the sounds of America’s true art form at the Chestertown Jazz Festival on the Eastern Shore. Then, head to Deep Creek Lake to enjoy the annual Art and Wine Festival in the Western Maryland mountains.
The Chesapeake Bay produces a delightful bounty of crabs and oysters, and they’re celebrated and sampled at the Maryland Seafood Festival in Sandy Point near Annapolis this weekend.
