History Established in 2001
In 2001 the seed was planted after 2 art receptions (ARTFX gallery & 49 West Coffeehouse) on West Street held at the same time started to spill into the sidewalks between the two on the first Sunday evening of each month. In 2002 Other businesses on the first block on West Street joined in and the event start filling the sidewalks of West street and went from and evening event into an all day event known as First Sunday Arts .
In 2003 West Street was closed in front of the 2 businesses for some much need public works improvements. During this time of no car access, the event moved into the street. By the time the West street construction was finished the event was so large it required the street to be closed on all First Sundays from May to October.
In 2008 the event was maxed out and no room was left to showcase new vendors on the first block of West Street that wanted to showcase their art and craft to the thousands now attending. We also wanted an area that could host larger groups for performances, dancing etc. So we added Whitemore Park on Calvert Street to the festival.
In 2009 the area under the trees on the corner of West and Calvert Streets, across from City Gate Lane was added to the Festival to give a little bit more room and fill in the gap between the 2 larger festival areas.
Wednesday Night Sailboat Races Annapolis
Grab your favorite dockside seat for the midweek races where some 150 boats sail around several marks in the Bay before heading back to Spa Creek for a finish in front of the Annapolis Yacht Club. For many, the post-race party is the official beginning of the weekend.
Holding to tradition, part of the Boatyard Bar & Grill original vision included filming the long-standing Annapolis Yacht Club Wednesday night races, as was done many years ago at Marmaduke’s Bar once located down the street.
The Boatyard hired Tucker Thompson and Bruce Nairn at t2p.tv to capture all the racing films shown at both the restaurant and AYC. Their main bar is a favorite meeting spot for friends and the racers fresh off the course to watch the races…talk of how their boat would’ve won except for that last wind shift is just one excuse you’ll hear! t2p.tv tows the Boatyard film boat to regattas from Key West to Newport and Block Island.
Listen every Wednesday evening on WRNR to hear the action on air as well!
- Date: From: April 30, 2014 – August 20, 2014
- Times: From: 6:10 PM to 8:00 PM

Silopanna Music Fest
Sponsored by The Rams Head Group – they’re we’re all about Food, Fun & Beer.
What started in 1989 as a small, 30-seat pub in Annapolis, Maryland has grown over the last 25 years. And through that growth, our committment to yummy food, craft beer and music has only grown stronger. Much stronger. They book nearly 700 concerts in Maryland (@ramsheadlive, @ramsheadonstage, @piersixpavilion) plus 600+ nights of free, live & local music in our restaurants. Every year. That’s a lot of music.
So in 2011, they thought let’s get crazy and we launched Silopanna Music Festival. Hurricane Irene had other plans for them, and 2011 was Irene-d out. They were back in 2012 and man, that was a wicked time. And here they are in 2014, ready to go again. Silopanna is our daily commitment to Food, Fun & Beer wrapped up into one exceptional day in Annapolis… where it all started in ’89.
