Sharkfest! 2020 - Calvert Marine Museum - Solomons, MD

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 07/11/2020
Sharkfest highlights the ultimate apex predator of the marine world. During Sharkfest, live sharks will be featured in the Corbin Pavilion July 11, 2020.

The museum is full of hands-on opportunities to explore the diversity of sharks and their remarkable history on planet Earth. Learn fascinating 'sharktoids', examine evidence of prehistoric sharks, make a shark-themed craft, and take your picture in the life-size jaws of a Megalodon shark. The award-winning Museum Store will be fully stocked with new shark mementos to take home. Museum members save 10% off in the store and everyone will enjoy the new express checkout at Sharkfest.

Both vilified and ruthlessly hunted, this keystone species is becoming seriously threatened. Evidence of sharks dates back 450 million years, and shark fossils similar to modern species date back over 100 million years. Sharks are highly adaptable and now live in every ocean in the world in warm, temperate, and cold waters. Learn why preserving these ancient animals is critical to the health of our oceans. Regular admission applies, members are free. Complimentary museum passes will not be honored and strollers are not allowed in the museum.
