ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The show will go on.

On Friday, the United States Powerboat Show announced their return to Annapolis for their 51st anniversary.

The iconic event will take place October 1 – 4 and October 8 – 12, during the Columbus Day holiday.

“The health and safety of our exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees is our team’s highest priority,” said Paul Jacobs, President of Annapolis Boat Shows. “As we plan for our fall shows, we’re taking proactive steps in response to the public health situation.”

Hundreds of new boats will be on display, including trailerable center-consoles and ocean-going yachts. A brokerage section will also be set up for anyone looking for previously owned yachts.

Some models will be available for test drives at the demo dock. Smaller boats will fill acres of shore side exhibit areas, along with tents stocked with nautical accessories and services.

Tickets are available for advance purchase on the Annapolis Boat Show website. Admission is $20 per person and $10 for children 12 and under. Ticket sales are final and only valid for the specific day they were purchased.
