The wonderful combination of great beer and festive tunes will be coming to Annapolis on Saturday, September 17 from noon until 6 p.m. at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. The Fifth Annapolis Craft Beer & Music Festival is a celebration of summer’s end and kicks off the festivities for autumn in Annapolis. Fine cuisine and arts and crafts will also be available.
You will be able to sample more than 120 kinds of craft beer, representing the very best collection ever made available in Annapolis, from over 45 national and regional breweries. If you want to home brew your own, you can attend seminars educating attendees on subjects such as Craft Beer 101 and Cooking with Craft Beer.
Live music for all ages will be performed on The Pilsner Stage, including smooth jazz, island music, rock and roll, classics, R&B, country, and more. Artists playing will include Jeremy Ragsdale, Sparks, Raymond & McCoy, TJ Shaw & Mudwagon, and Michael McHenry. You may bring your lawn chairs and blankets, so you can listen to great music while savoring brew samples.
According to the festival: “Enjoy viewing and purchasing the work of regional and national artists and crafters as well as specialty food items. Featured artists will include painters, photographers, nautical artists, plus craftsmen making jewelry, wearable art or working in glass, metal or leather.”
