Time:  6–10 p.m.

Location: Loews Annapolis Hotel – 126 West Street, Annapolis



 The Details

What can guests expect? A fun-filled evening featuring What’s Up? Media’s Best of winners! Savor award-winning food and drink samples from top local restaurants, live music by Radio City, and a huge silent auction (and we mean HUGE!). Some of the silent auction items include TWO Loge Level Tickets to the 2017 American Music Awards show in November (airfare and lodging for two included!), a four-night stay at the Westin Puntacana in the Dominican Republic with airfare for two, and a Pandora bracelet from Zachary’s Jewelers! Click here for a full list of auction items. This year’s event is less of an awards presentation (there’ll be no on-stage announcements!) and more of a party, so bring your dancing shoes and don’t miss out on the party of the summer!

Food and drinks? Dive into delicious drink samples and enjoy freshly prepared cuisine from top local restaurants, like Broadneck Grill and Cantina, Main & Market, Carpaccio, Red Red Wine Bar, and so many more!

What about parking? Plenty of parking options as Loews Annapolis has its own lot with valet and self-parking services available. You can also choose to park on the street!

The dress code? Dress your best with nautical flair! And feel free to be inspired by checking out the above photo album or perusing photos from last year’s event here!

Are tickets still available? Tickets are still available, but act fast because this event sells out every year. Tickets go for $80 for General Admission and $140 for VIP. Click here for tickets.

Where do the proceeds go? This year, the silent auction benefits the South River Federation in Edgewater and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels.
