Annapolis Boat Shows

Announcement From The Annapolis Boat Shows

Following Governor Hogan’s press conference placing Maryland in a State of Emergency and halting all major events, the Annapolis Boat Shows has placed a temporary hold on both the Bay Bridge Boat Show (April 17-19) and Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show (April 24-26). 

The safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors, employees, and volunteers are our top priority, and we commend Governor Hogan for his actions. We are monitoring the situation and will rely on the expertise of our governing agencies to guide our decisions. For the sake of all in our community, it is our hope that the measures put in place today will help to resolve this crisis quickly and that the Shows will be reinstated.

In the meantime, we are preparing show locations with hand washing stations and taking other recommended precautions including training our staff in best practices for serving our guests. Our organization will continue to plan for these shows pending the governor lifting restrictions on public events.  A final decision will be announced no later than April 2. We will continue to update our page and send communication out regarding any changes. 


The Annapolis Boat Shows

The 1970 debut of the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland marked a new concept – the first in-water sailboat show in the country. Today the Annapolis Boat Shows has an unsurpassed reputation for offering the most comprehensive boating exhibitions in the industry. Each of our boat shows give boaters the unique opportunity to board and inspect virtually every new model on the market, make side-by-side comparisons, and talk to industry leaders about all aspects of buying and owning a boat. Exhibitors are highly motivated to put you in the boat of your dreams at the best possible price. In addition, one can shop from a vast display of boating products and services – everything from financing and insurance to electronics and foul weather gear. It’s always a fun and informative day exploring boats and boat supplies.
