The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage sponsored a Mid-Atlantic Maritime Festival in 2004. This website is an online exhibition of the festival and provides a beautiful, cultural mosaic of Mid-Atlantic shore life. Navigate around information on Marsh Life, Boat Yards, Shore Memories and Maritime Recipes. Live recordings of traditional Mid-Atlantic music and storytelling are provided. View beautiful photo galleries of boats, water and beach scenes and hear fisherman talk about their craft. There are activities for students to participate in as well.
