Overview

In celebration of the running of the 142nd Preakness, Lexington Market will host its first-ever Crab Race Festival on Thursday, May 18, 2017, 5 to 8 p.m., outdoors adjacent to the Lexington Market Arcade (between Eutaw and North Paca Streets.) The happy hour event pays tribute to the historic Crab Derby, held annually at the Market in advance of Preakness. Food from Faidley’s Seafood and other iconic Market vendors will be available along with local craft brews and specialty cocktails. Live music by The Kelly Bell Band and a Kids Zone full of games, crafts, and other activities will provide fun for the entire family. And, of course, the world famous Lexington Market Crab Derby will be a highlight of the festivities. Tickets are $5. The event is free for kids 16 and under. Advance ticket purchase on Eventbrite entitles you to a $5 food credit. Proceeds from the Festival will fund ongoing activities, programming and improvements at the Market. More information is available on Facebook and at http://www.lexingtonmarket.com or http://www.crabderby.org.
