The Sassafras River Association’s 3rd annual Sassafest River Jam is being held on Sunday, July 8 12pm- 5pm at Georgetown Yacht Basin. This year’s free event is shaping up to be full of entertainment with performances by Chester River Runoff, Driven Women, The Blueskeepers. The day will begin with the annual Wade-In, and you’ll have more chances to have fun in the water with the dingy poker run and kayak race. (Contestants in any of the boating events should bring their own watercraft and lifevests.) We’ll also be holding a raffle for a Paddleboard!
Local food and drink will be sold by Kitty Knight House. A variety of exhibitors – Mt. Harmon Plantation, ELF, Betterton Fishing Ark, and others – will have booths full of fun activities and information. Maryland Department of Natural Resources’ Scales and Tales exhibit featuring live animals is also back again this year.
Sassafest River Jam is shaping up to be a great event on the Sassafras and we hope you will join us. To volunteer or for more information, please visit www.sassafrasriver.org or call Erin McVey at 410.275.1400.
