Historic Downtown Cambridge, Maryland, an authentic Chesapeake town on the Eastern Shore, is known for its rich history, beautiful buildings, vibrant arts scene, and one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and services.

Watermelon Eating Contest at Taste of Cambridge

Citing potential flooding, high tides, heavy rain and wind, IRONMAN announced the postponement of its event here on Oct. 3. Race organizers broke the news to about 100 participants in attendance as part of its race briefing at Long Wharf, while email notifications went out to the remaining 2,000 athletes with instructions not to travel to Maryland.


Cambridge Main Street and Young Professionals of Dorchester County have teammed up with IRONMAN Maryland to provide shuttle service for athletes and their families into downtown Cambridge. These golf cart shuttles will happen from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. A few shifts are still available if anyone would like to fill in as a last minute driver.



Business owners in downtown Cambridge are making plans, extending hours and carrying special items for IRONMAN Maryland participants and their families.

Cambridge Main Street, RAR Brewing and McReady's Hearth & Home have teammed up to create a unique environment downtown for anyone interested in cheering on participants of IronMan Maryland on Oct. 3 from 5-10 p.m. There will be an outdoor lounge, food, drinks, and live entertainment from some of your favorite live performers.


We'll have music by Dave Hawkins, Bobby Reed and Blackwater. Join us at the intersection of Gay and Poplar, sit back, and enjoy the race.

Cambridge Main Street is sad to say it has had to cancel its Summer Sendoff - Blues, Brews and Barbecue event today. This morning's weather was not great, but the decision was made after seeing an almost definite band of rain which is expected to hit Cambridge around 8 p.m. Standing water, and the risk of more rain, made setting up a live band, as well as restaurants using electricity to heat food, an unnecessary risk.

The event will be pushed back to Oct. 3, where it will run in conjunction with IronMan Maryland from 5-10 p.m. Please make plans to join us. Thank you for your support.
