5th Annual Sock Burning

March 30 | 12-3 p.m.

The ritual of burning your winter socks began in Annapolis in the 70's and has been maintained as a tradition among sailors ever since. It heralds the beginning of spring and the new sailing season; a time in which deck shoes will be worn without socks, and toes will be free!

So join our sockless soiree and celebrate the beginning of the 2019 season!
