What: The Eastern Shore once again plays host to the Chestertown Tea Party Festival — an event not to be confused with any political affiliation.
The festival commemorates a May 1774 incident, when Chestertown residents — in response to England's closing of the port of Boston — gathered at the town center, marched down High Street to the brigantine Geddes and tossed its cargo of tea overboard.
The re-enactment of that patriotic act is the centerpiece of the event and will take place on Saturday, May 28.
Other activities include a parade down Main Street, tours onboard the schooner Sultana, live demonstrations of Colonial life, music, wine tastings, historic Colonial theater, food and more than 100 vendors of Colonial crafts.
Where: The festival takes place along the Chester River and in the historic district of Chestertown
When: May 27-29
How much: Free.
