Patuxent River Appreciation Day (PRAD) is an annual festival, held at the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons, Maryland. This celebration creates awareness, recognition, and promotion of the economic, social, recreational, cultural, and historical impact of the tributaries and environs of the Patuxent River and the basin through which it flows.
The festival brings together and reflects the continuing commitment of the community, Calvert County Board of County Commissioners, Calvert Marine Museum, and other organizations that share a desire to preserve the Patuxent River and to celebrate its positive influence on the area's quality of life in the past, present, and future.
By bringing these people together in a public forum, PRAD hopes to continue the interest in support of the environmental programs and tourism activities surrounding the Patuxent River and its tributaries.
