The United States Powerboat Show in Annapolis is slated to move forward as planned Oct. 1-4, and the United States Sailboat Show will run the following weekend, Oct. 8-12.

“The health and safety of our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees is our team’s highest priority,” said Annapolis Boat Shows president Paul Jacobs in a statement. “As we plan for our fall shows, we’re taking proactive steps in response to the public health situation.”

One key to achieving maximum safety is to control the number of visitors across all show days, Jacobs said. Visitors will be able to purchase day-specific tickets in advance at the general admission price of $20. “Once a day’s ticket allotment is sold out, you may select an alternate day,” he explained.
