We Are Back
Since 1970, the Annapolis Boat Shows have hosted some of the most comprehensive boating events in the maritime industry. We excited to host to bring our boat shows back in 2021. We have great shows planned, starting with an expanded format for our Bay Bridge Boat Show which will combine Power and Sail into one great show.
Expanded Format for our Spring Show
Spring marks the awakening of the boating season on Chesapeake Bay, and what perfect timing for the rebirth of our spring shows. This year we are moving our spring sailboat show to join forces with the Bay Bridge Boat Show. This new format will provide attendees with two shows in one. The Bay Bridge Boat Show has expanded to a four-day event, inviting guests to attend Thursday through Sunday. All boaters are encouraged to attend, no matter if you sail, paddle, fish, or power – this show is for you.

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.

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 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.
