Maryland Day marks the landing of 150 European settlers who arrived on two ships, “The Ark” and “The Dove.” They disembarked on March 25, 1634, at St. Clement’s Island in the Potomac River (in what is today St. Mary’s County).
Marylanders began officially observing Maryland Day in 1903. In 1916, the day was designated a legal holiday.
A number of virtual and in-person events are planned for next weekend (March 31 to April 2) in Annapolis and around Anne Arundel County to celebrate Maryland Day. For more information, including observances and partner events, visit: www.MarylandDay.org.
