As the weather turns warmer, the City of Annapolis welcomes several significant events downtown, including Maryland Day events on March 25-26, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade and African Diaspora event on Saturday, April 2, and the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show Friday, April 29 through Sunday, May 1.

Before attending these events, visitors are encouraged to check-in at www.accessannapolis.com and make a plan for parking and transit because construction is slated to begin soon on the Noah Hillman Garage downtown.

During the boat show, the City Dock surface lot, Donner surface lot, and Basil surface lot will be closed. These lots are open and operational during the other events, but some of the spaces may be limited or restricted.

When Hillman garage goes offline, there remain more than 3,400 parking spaces available in Annapolis. Transit options to get visitors from garages into downtown will include the Circulator Shuttle and a separate Electric Trolley running more frequently between parking assets close to downtown. Reserved close-in garage parking for the Spring Sailboat Show can be pre-purchased by visiting www.AnnapolisParking.com.  An additional 1,000 spaces are available at Navy Stadium with a $2 shuttle to and from Lawyer’s Mall (Bladen at College Avenue).
