Crisfield Hero Image


Home of the annual National Hard Crab Derby and the annual Tawes Crab & Clam Bake, Crisfield is the southernmost city in the state of Maryland.  Located between the Annemessex and the Pocomoke River, it has a natural cove that affords protection from the weather.  This cove is now part of Somers Cove Marina, where several charter boats are moored.  Unofficially known as “The Crab Capital of the World”, Crisfield has its roots in the seafood industry and harvesting the bounty of the bay.  When you visit, stop in and check out the local shops, grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants, make plans to attend one of the stellar events, and make your own adventure.
