Greenwell Monster Rockfish Festival

The Greenwell Foundation is hosting the Monster Rockfish Festival on Sunday, October 31 from 11 a. m. to 5 p.m. at Greenwell State Park in Hollywood, Maryland!

The Monster Rockfish Festival is being held in conjunction with the first annual Monster Rockfish Tournament, taking place in the Maryland waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010. The tournament is a production of BAMM Enterprises in Lexington Park.

The highlight of the Festival is the First Annual Rockfish Cook-off featuring restaurants from the greater Maryland area. There will be Rockfish tastings and other seasonal culinary delights, as well as beer and local wine. Entertainment options include live music, tours of historic Rosedale Manor and an awards ceremony for Monster Rockfish Tournament participants. Local crafters and artists will display and sell their work.

Pony rides, and horseback, fishing and kayaking demonstrations (weather permitting) will be offered.

The Festival is a designated SAFE TRICK OR TREATING ZONE. Vendors will offer candy and other treats to children who come in costume. Other Halloween events will include pumpkin painting, costume contests, hay rides, and a pre-carved pumpkin contest (bring your carved pumpkin to the Festival for judging).

The Festival is free to the general public ($3.00 parking fee applies).
