    National Outdoor Show
    Enjoy a slice of authentic Dorchester County culture with oyster shucking, log sawing, muskrat skinning, duck calling–and beauty pageants–during the 74th annual National Outdoor Show Feb. 22-23. The event opens Friday evening with a pageant to name Miss Outdoors, followed by the world championship muskrat skinning semi-finals. The event continues on Saturday with Little Miss and Little Mister Outdoors, game cooking demo, police K-9 demo, duck and goose calling contests, more championship muskrat skinning, and more. You can even taste muskrat prepared the traditional way (Saturday only; while supplies last). This one-of-a-kind event was featured in a PBS documentary, Muskrat Lovely.

    Make a weekend out of it with the Crawfish Boil & Muskrat Stew Fest on Sunday, Feb. 24 with live Cajun blues music, traditional Louisiana and Eastern Shore food items, the Muskrat Leg Eating Contest, and more in downtown Cambridge, Maryland.
