Yorktown Market Days - Maritime Festival

Saturday, November 12, 2022

During this extended farmers market, sample some of the best seafood in the area including clam chowder, Virginia blue crabs, and fresh fried fish.

H2-Oh, what fun you're going to have at the Maritime Festival! Visitors can sample some of the best seafood in the area, like oysters, lobster rolls, and shrimp. Artisans will be selling nautical-inspired jewelry and art. Pirates will invade the waterfront to talk to kids about seafaring life, and there will be education information for mariners of all ages. Sing along to live sea shanties on the Riverwalk Landing Stage.

Stop by the History Fair inside the Freight Shed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to hear the untold stories of Yorktown, then cruise on over to the Riverwalk Landing Piers for workboat displays and tours. At 12 p.m. join us for the Yorktown Tea Party Reenactment at the waterfront. The Fifes and Drums of York Town will perform at 10 a.m. 

Larry Chowning, author of 11 boat-related books including Deadrise and Cross-planked, will be meeting and greeting visitors in the Freight Shed from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
