Annual Downtown Annapolis Events - Parking Caution
During the first two weeks of October (U.S. Sailboat Show and the U.S. Powerboat Show), the week prior to Memorial Day weekend ( U.S. Naval Academy Graduation/ Commissioning Week), and mid-January through mid-April (Maryland General Assembly Session), there is a high demand for parking downtown.
The garages and on-street parking fill up fast in the morning during these weeks. Allow plenty of extra time for traffic congestion and locating parking to arrive at your meeting on time. We recommend using public parking at the Naval Academy Stadium on Rowe Blvd. and taking the shuttle downtown. If you park on a downtown street, keep your meter filled and avoid parking in restricted neighborhoods.
