Parking and Shuttle Service
Please Note: Parking in the Eastport section of Annapolis is often difficult and especially so during Boat Show weekend. Please plan ahead!
It is an easy walk or a short water taxi ride from the Boat Show & downtown Annapolis to Eastport Yacht Club and the EYC Boat Show Bash.
Visitors to Annapolis are encouraged to park on Saturday, October 11th at the Park & Ride on Harry S. Truman Parkway off Riva Road. This is the "official Sailboat Show Parking" for Saturday only, due to a Navy Football game scheduled for that day. The Boat Show provides complimentary shuttle buses from the parking lot to the City Dock from 9 AM until 8 PM on Saturday, October 11th. These buses are not affiliated with the EYC Boat Show Bash. For information on these buses, please click HERE. In addition, the City of Annapolis' Circulator Trolley service (also not affiliated with the Bash) will be operating throughout downtown and Eastport on Saturday. Find out more HERE.
