When you combine jazz, seafood, and the waterfront, you get the Potomac Jazz and Seafood Festival! The festival is the main fundraiser for the St. Mary’s County Museum Division, which financially support the museums, historic sites, and various programs and projects.
Music and food aren’t the only activities at the festival. Before getting a spot on the grass for the night’s jazz performances, consider taking a boat ride to the island where you can tour the reconstructed lighthouse and walk in the footsteps of our Maryland forefathers.
