Annapolis is one of the top boating destinations in the U.S. Its location along the Chesapeake Bay makes it easy to get on the water; watercraft of all shapes and sizes fill the many marinas in the city. Annapolis also has a deep-seated maritime culture, which is emphasized by the fact that it is the site of the United States Naval Academy. For those who want to experience Annapolis’s enthusiastic boating culture, the Bay Bridge Boat Show is an annual event that is dropping anchor in the city again this spring.

The Bay Bridge Boat Show is an outdoor event at Bay Bridge Marina in Stevensville, a 20-minute drive or an easy boat ride from Annapolis. This event centered around powerboats is intended to mark the beginning of boating season. The Bay Bridge Boat Show will run from April 14th to April 16th and will feature some unique boats while providing entertainment and a lively atmosphere.

Attendees at the Bay Bridge Boat Show can browse an array of powerboats varying in size, from small fishing boats to luxury cruisers. They will find excellent deals on vessels and can discuss the boats further with vendors. This event is also an ideal place to shop for boating products and services, as vendors will sell many high-quality boating-related offerings ranging from repair services to fishing and watersport gear.

At the PropTalk Demo Dock, visitors can step aboard eight different boats and even take them for a spin through the Chesapeake Bay waters, providing an excellent opportunity for boaters to discern whether a boat is a fit for them. There will also be free daily boating seminars encompassing important regional boating topics as well as family-friendly introductory-level boating courses. 

While the boats are the main attraction, the Bay Bridge Boat Show will also have live music, entertainment, and food. There will be beverage stations and food vendors that serve tasty treats and meals, including seafood and various cuisine options. The event has a family-friendly feel, and there will be activities and performances geared toward younger audiences to ensure everyone has a good time.
