Two Annapolis Boat Shows take place over the next couple of weeks: the 41st Annual US Sailboat Show and the 39th Annual US Powerboat Show.Â TheÂ Sailboat Show happens Thursday, October 7th through Monday, October 11th while the Powerboat Show takes place on Thursday, October 14th through Sunday, October 17th.
There will be a Navy home football game on Saturday, October 16th so parking won't be available on that day.Â However, every other day that the boat shows are going on, you can park at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium on Route 50, Exit 24 for just $10 per day.Â There will be a free shuttle available from the stadium parking lot to the boat show as well.Â The shuttle will operate between 9am and 6pm Monday through Friday and 10am to 6pm on the weekends.Â Shuttle stops include Church Circle, US Naval Academy Gate 1 and City Dock.
On the 16th, the shuttle will be available every 1/2 hr from the Court of Appeals Building (Taylor Ave and Rowe Blvd).Â Parking for that day only will be available at Route 50, Exit 22/Aris T Allen Blvd.Â Parking is again $10 for the day and the last shuttle will return one hour after the Powerboat Show ends.
There are plenty of restaurants available in the area to have lunch and/or dinner at when you attend the boat shows.Â Whether fresh Maryland seafood, Mexican tapas, Japanese, Thai, upscale fine dining or light cafes are your choice, there's a dining establishment for you!
