Celebrate Riverfest at Historic St. Mary’s City
Posted by Historic St. Mary’s City
ST. MARY’S CITY, MD — Celebrate our waterways at RiverFest with free activities, entertainment, and learning about the environment. The eighth annual event will take place at Historic St. Mary’s City (HSMC) on Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Step aboard a tall ship, paddle a kayak, and help skipper a small sailboat. Try tonging for oysters or tying sailors’ knots. Join former State Senator Bernie Fowler for the annual Wade-In, an informal measure of water quality.
Non-stop music will set the beat as you visit informative exhibits. Make some new fine-feathered and finned friends. Discover things you can do in your own backyard that help preserve our unique landscape. Take home a free Conservation at Home booklet for more opportunities to save waterways. Join a paddle-in organized by Fresco Adventures.
Contact Marcia at firstname.lastname@example.org or (301) 352-5272; kayak and lunch are included in the fee. Vendors will be on site offering snacks, beverages, and meals for sale throughout the day.
