SHARKFEST RETURNS BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!

Saturday, July 8 at the Calvert Marine Museum

SHARKFEST returns to the Calvert Marine Museum on Saturday, July 8. Join us from 10 a.m. – 5 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-themed craft, get your face painted ($5 fee), and take your picture in the life-size jaws of a Megalodon shark. Slide down the jaws of a giant inflated shark, sponsored by Tidewater Dental.

The award winning Museum Store will be fully stocked with new “shark” mementos to take home. Museum members save 10% off in the store every day and everyone will enjoy the new express checkout at SHARKFEST. Captain Smith’s Seafood and Rita’s Ice will be on site with food and drink for sale. Complimentary museum passes will not be honored and strollers are not allowed in the museum for SHARKFEST. For more information, visit www.calvertmarinemuseum.com.
