Annapolis Shows Scheduled Through 2025


After canceling its power- and sailboat shows last fall due to the pandemic, Annapolis Boat Shows announced that it scheduled the marquee events through 2025.

This year’s U.S. Powerboat Show is slated for Oct. 7-10, and U.S. Sailboat show is scheduled for Oct. 14-18.

“Our future dates now coordinate seamlessly with the other major boat shows,” Annapolis Boat Shows president Paul Jacobs said in a statement. “This will allow our exhibitors flexibility with travel planning, affording them the ability to showcase their boats and products across multiple dates and locations.”

Organizers said a steering committee has been formed with city and county health officials, boat show producers and economic development leaders to draft health and safety standards to ensure the shows can continue.
