Parking restrictions (and some tips) for the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show

The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show is back at the City Dock and will run from 10 a.m. Friday, April 29 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 1 at the City Dock in downtown Annapolis. Thousands of visitors will be in downtown Annapolis to view new and brokerage yachts for sale as well as exhibits, seminars and vendors. In addition to embarking on magnificent sailboats, guests are invited to meet yacht clubs and charter companies, buy materials and equipment and meet sea professionals and sailing friends.

Cars will not be allowed to park at the end of Dock Street (from the Harbor Office to Susan Campbell Park) from midnight on April 25. Cars remaining after this time will be deleted. Dock Street and Prince George Street, from Craig Street to the water, will be closed to vehicles and used for the installation of the show.

Boats will have a limited number of docks in Ego Alley after Sunday April 24. Pay attention to the red mooring bags and the lack of mooring panels. As always, visitors must register with the Harbor Master (410-263-7973 or VHF 17).

Vendor loads will begin on April 26 and 27.
