CRISFIELD, Md.- One of Maryland's hottest political events of the year is set to get underway Wednesday in Crisfield. 

The 43rd Annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake is scheduled for Wednesday.

The all-you-can-eat festival draws politicians from across the state to eat, mingle and sweat on the Eastern Shore. Because this year's event isn't happening in an election year, it's unlikely to draw as many politicians. However, Gov. Larry Hogan is expected to be in attendance. 

It all happens in an asphalt parking lot by Somers Cover Marina, where the smell of steamed crabs, shrimp and clams wafts in the air. 

The festival is named in honor of Crisfield native J. Millard Tawes, who was governor from 1959 to 1967. He's also the only Maryland politician to ever be elected governor, comptroller and treasurer.

The four-hour event at Somers Cove Marina kicks off at noon and ends at 4 p.m. 

WBOC will be at the festival with live reports at noon. We will also livestream from the event on the WBOC News app and the WBOC Facebook page. Telemundo Delmarva will provide live coverage on the Telemundo Delmarva Facebook page. 

WBOC 102.5 will be broadcasting during the event. Please stop by the WBOC tent to meet some of our on-air personalities.
