Lexington Market’s 2018 Crab Derby Festival is being moved to inside the market Thursday because of the forecast for rain, but here’s a bright spot: The event is offering free general admission tickets to all University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) students, staff, and faculty members who present their UMB ID.
In addition, if a member of the UMB community wants to bring a friend or family member (kids 16 and under are free), they can get 20 percent off the price of tickets and ticket packages, which include food, drink and VIP packages. Also, those tickets can be purchased at the door as well, not just online.
The Crab Derby Festival will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will feature live music from Strykers’ Posse; food from vendors such as Faidley’s Seafood and Connie’s Chicken & Waffles; local craft beer, wine, and signature cocktails; a kids zone with games, crafts, and activities; and — of course — crab racing.
