It happens every year. Winter goes away and spring arrives along
with all of the festivals. Over the summer, we will highlight a few
of the best festivals around so stay tuned for our insight into the
fests you need to keep on your calendar as we talk with the folks
that bring them all to you!
First up is the Naptown BarBAYq which is happening this Saturday, May 6th at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds. The BarBAYq is put together by ABC Events who are also the force behind the Maryland Chicken Wing Festival (and yes we talk abou that), the Bay Bridge Paddle, and the Maryland Seafood Festival! Listen to Brendan Curley as he talks about their mission and how they are changing things up all the time to keep it fresh.
In the middle, we speak with Kevin Chaney who is the Emcee for the Annapolis Irish Festival which rolls into town on June 2nd and 3rd this year. We talk about the origins of the festival and how it has grown over the years since Eddie McGowan founded it in 2011. What is new for this year (spoiler...Guinness) and how they have contributed and given back to the community.
Finally, Brendan Curley joins us again to talk about the
Festival. This is happening on September 9th
and 10th and is a very special one this year--the festival is 50
years old. We talk about the history from City Dock to Sandy Point.
The famous crab soup cook off and much more!
Throughout the summer, we will also look at the upcoming Annapolis Arts Week and the Annapolis Arts & Wine Festival, Kegs & Corks Beer and Wine Festival, and the Nextival, so make sure you subscribe to us to get all the 411 sent right to your phone!
