Annapolis Boat Shows

We Are Back

Since 1970, the Annapolis Boat Shows have hosted some of the most comprehensive boating events in the maritime industry. While 2020 was difficult for boat shows everywhere, the Annapolis Boat Shows are alive and well and ready to take on 2021 with gusto and determination. We are currently finalizing our plans for this coming spring and are already underway on our upcoming marquee fall shows.

Spring Show Plans

Spring is upon us and we are working hard to develop our final show plans for this April. Coordinating with government officials and our exhibitors, we are looking to provide a whole new show experience for spring 2021. Plans will be announced in early February, along with tickets going on sale. Please check back and sign up for our email list to stay up to date on the latest information.


Fall Shows Five Year Schedule

We are happy to announce the fall shows will now take place on the same October dates for the next five years. The United States Powerboat Show will be held on the four days (Thursday to Sunday) of the first full weekend in October and the United States Sailboat Show will follow on the second full weekend (Thursday to Monday). For the 2021 season, we are confident that our fall shows will be back and will provide the level of experience that all boaters have come to expect.

Covid19 Update

Taking in the knowledge from lessons learned in 2020, the management team is working hard to produce shows that ensure the health and safety of all in attendance. A steering committee consisting of county health officials, representatives from economic development, city and county management, the boat show producers, and their contractors is on the horizon. Additionally, a 35-page health and safety manual has been drafted, along with logistics and protocols, to allow each show to run safely and productively. 2021 and beyond is looking promising for all and the Annapolis Boat Shows looks forward to welcoming everyone back to Maryland.

As our show plans are finalized, we will publish our COVID-19 Update and Show Safety Guidelines.
