(Waldorf, MD, May 6, 2021)The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs have announced their 2021 Fan Fest, scheduled for Saturday, May 22nd at Regency Furniture Stadium, running from 12-3 PM.
For the first time in 600 days, the Blue Crabs will be inviting fans into Regency Furniture Stadium. Fan Fest is a free, socially distanced pre-season kick-off unlike any other. Gates will open at noon, at which time fans will be permitted to begin their tour of all the brand new sights, sounds, and smells that Regency Furniture Stadium has to offer.
As Blue Crabs fans enter the socially distanced Fan Fest, they will be handed a signature collection card for the day. Televisions will be spread throughout the concourse, where fans will be invited to virtually meet the 2021 Blue Crabs players, coaches, and staff. Fans’ collection cards will be their roadmap to navigate Fan Fest. It will direct you to each virtual meet and greet station, and as fans get to know the Blue Crabs, they can stamp each player’s signature onto their collection card.
