8th Annual Crawfish Boil and Muskrat Stew Fest held in Cambridge

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – Rainy and blustery weather did not stop hundreds of people on Sunday from going outside to celebrate the 8th Annual Crawfish Boil and Muskrat Stew Fest in Cambridge.

This Cambridge tradition attracts people from all across Delmarva. Visitors can enjoy all sorts of delicious food like boiled crawfish, raw oyster, crawfish cake and even barbecue muskrat at the event.

According to the event spokesperson Keith Graffius it takes hundreds of pounds of crawfish from Lousiana as well as muskrat from the Eastern Shore to prepare for this event.

“The muskrat is part of the history and heritage of Dorchester County in Cambridge, Maryland so we like to just celebrate that this time of the year when we have the national outdoors show Friday and Saturday night with the World Championship Muskrat Skinning Contest,” said Graffius.

Graffius also said a portion of the money raised at the event will go towards the Dorchester County Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Fund.
