Save the Date/Purchase Tickets in Advance: Crab Feast September 16

The 2023 Cabin John Chicken and Crab Feast will be held Saturday, September 16, from 2 – 6 pm.

Delicious steamed crabs, tasty grilled chicken with a secret recipe rub, yummy fresh vegetables cooked to perfection, homemade baked beans and more will be served up by CJ neighbors while the Starlight Orchestra serenades the crowd. 

The food and fun are served up starting at 2 pm. The 15-piece jazz and swing band gets underway shortly thereafter. The fun continues until 6 pm. The crab feast is the largest community event of the year and typically brings together some 600 Cabin Johners and friends. It is also an important fundraiser for the Cabin John Citizens’ Association. 

Games and activities for kids will be run by the staff of the Clara Barton Neighborhood Recreation Center.

Volunteers Needed!

It takes over 150 people to plan, prep, serve, and clean up the Crab Feast every year. Ask anyone who has worked the Crab Feast and they will confirm it is really fun volunteering for an hour or two. You’ll never regret getting to know your neighbors a little better and getting that warm feeling from knowing you’ve done your part.

You can volunteer to:  serve on the line, snap beans and cut collards at veg prep, help in the kitchen or at the grill, help keep the water and drinks filled, help setup/cleanup, and more!

If you can volunteer a couple of hours on Saturday, September 16 or the days leading up to it, email Scott and Heidi at cjcapresidents@gmail.com. SSL hours approved.
