5th Annual Sock Burning

2019 Date: TBA

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!

-Member race in the morning
-Sock Burning Ceremony
-Food truck and s'mores
-Mariner's Olympics
-Children's activities
-Beverages available for purchase

*Most of all, be sure to wear a pair of socks to burn, and bring some new socks to donate to the homeless!*
