We are the Maryland, Maritime Heritage Festival. 

We are neither port nor starboard, fore or aft. We are the keel down, middle of the boat, giving it strength and purpose. We do what we all like doing the most: maintaining, preserving and restoring our classic and historical boats on land and enjoying them on the water!

Through the Maryland Maritime Heritage Festival, a 501-c3 non-profit organization, we host an annual boat festival on the beautiful waterfront in Chestertown, Maryland dedicated to showcasing the legacy of traditional Chesapeake Bay Working, Sailing, Racing and Recreational boats.

MMHF was formed in 2004 and got off to a great start hosting annual events on in Annapolis. In 2018 there was a reorganization and in 2020 a new Board of Directors (all classic and historical boat owners) was formed and plans for a new and exciting annual event began. 

MMHC has formed a partnership with the new owner of the historic Galesville Volunteer Firehouse. Our partnership provides MMHC with a facility where our members gather to host seminars on restoring and maintaining vintage and classic boats of the Chesapeake Bay. The Firehouse facility also provides our members with access to indoor and outdoor storage as well as a place to work on their boats at very reasonable rates. We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey as we gather together to enjoy our passion for these beautiful historic and classic boats on and off the water
