GREAT FOOD - local foodies are encouraged to attend for a unique opportunity to sample delicious and innovative creations from over 80 of Baltimore's top restaurants and caterers, accompanied by beer, wine, special liquor samples, soft drinks, and a cash bar. The event will also feature the third annual chefs' competition where vendors will compete for the honor of best food, best cocktail, best food presentation, and best booth setup.

GREAT MUSIC - Maritime Magic always features amazing musical acts, and this year is no exception! Headlining the evening’s entertainment will be Los Angeles natives and Grammy Award winning band, Ozomatli, bringing an impressive variety of genres from classic to modern Latino, urban, hip-hop and other world styles. The “Dioses del Baile,” or “Gods of Dance,” are widely considered to have created one of the most exciting, captivating and flat-out fun live shows touring today.
