Publish date:

Event organizers Annapolis Boat Shows said it will combine the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show and Bay Bridge Boat Show into one, expanded Bay Bridge Boat Show.


The show is scheduled for April 15-18 at Bay Bridge Marina in Stevensville, Md.

“Spring marks the awakening of the boating season on Chesapeake Bay, and what perfect timing for the rebirth of our spring shows,” Annapolis Boat Shows president Paul Jacobs said in a statement. “By moving our spring sailboat show to join with the Bay Bridge Boat Show, we will present two shows in one.”


Organizers said they are working with state and local officials to comply with protocols for the health and safety and exhibitors and attendees. The safety guidelines will be available online when they are finalized.

Tickets must be purchased in advance of the show.
