SHARKFEST RETURNS BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!
Saturday, July 11 at the Calvert Marine Museum
SHARKFEST! returns to the Calvert Marine Museum, bigger and better than ever, Saturday, July 11. Join us from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. for one of the museum’s most popular events. Regular museum admission applies; CMM members are free.
Sharks are one of the world’s most fascinating creatures and SHARKFEST is a chance to learn more about them. Live sharks will be featured in the Corbin Pavilion, along with sturgeon from NRG Energy – The Chalk Point Generating Station. The museum will be full of hands-on opportunities to explore the diversity of sharks and their remarkable history on planet Earth. Learn fascinating ‘sharktoids’, examine evidence of prehistoric sharks, paint a shark mural, make a shark craft, get your face painted ($5 fee), play the Shark Game Show, and take your picture in the life-size jaws of a Megalodon shark.
Celebrating their 10th year of entertaining tens of thousands of fans throughout the country, Rocknoceros will perform original rock music for children. Enjoy performances at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., sponsored by the PNC Foundation.
The award winning Museum Store will be stocked full with new “shark” items arriving daily. Enter your name in a drawing to win baseball tickets to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs vs. Camden Riversharks on Friday, July 17. Boomerangs Original Ribs and Maggie Moo’s will be on site, along with the CMM Volunteer Council selling snacks. Complimentary museum passes will not be honored and strollers are not allowed in the museum for SHARKFEST. For more information, visit www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.
