31st Annual Cardboard Boat Races

June 22
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating indefinitely

This year marks the 31st Anniversary of the Cardboard Boat Races on the Strand in Oxford, Maryland to be held on the shores of the Tred Avon River on Saturday, June 22. The event is held along The Strand in shallow water so all contestants can push their sunken sodden creations around the course.

But with the crafty skills of some of the builders their exhibits of construction are most durable. Some of the crafts have been racing for over five years. For more information call 410-924-3212 or email skipper3212@gmail.com.  You can also register on the day of the event (registration opens at 9:00 at The Strand). The first race begins at 11:00 am and the event is over by approx. 1:30.
