Annual Crab and Chicken Feast

The Crab and Chicken Feast was first held in 1970 and is Cabin John’s largest community event attracting more than 500 residents and visitors. It is sponsored by the Cabin John Citizens Association (CJCA) and is the biggest annual fundraiser to support the activities of the CJCA. Since 1990 it has taken place at the Clara Barton Community Center traditionally on the first Saturday after Labor Day. Crabs, chicken, and many side dishes are cooked on site. Scores of volunteers contribute time and talent to bring Cabin John together in a festivity enjoyed by all.
