Forget cooking dinner and instead head out to Maryland's largest music and food truck festival.

The third annual "Nextival" returns to the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds Friday, July 13. The three-day event features more than 40 bands, over two dozen food trucks, 30 vendors. There are also tons of family-friendly activities including a 68-foot-long obstacle course, inflatable rock climbing wall and pony rides. 

The Nextival kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday and runs until 10 p.m. On Saturday the festival runs from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Then on Sunday the doors open at 11 a.m. and the event shuts down at 5 p.m.

Tickets start at $10, kids under 12 get in for free when you buy an adult ticket. Military, veterans, first responders and their families can get into The Nextival for free on Friday.

All of the event proceeds will benefit three non-profits: The Capital Gazette Families Fund, Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians, Inc. and Juice Box Jams.
