The 2018 concert was cancelled at the 11th hour due to a state of emergency in place with Hurricane Florence looming on the shoreline. As fast as the hurricane made a last minute turn away from the Bay, the Bash became the Hurricane Party, a scaled down version of the annual event featuring Peter & Brendan Mayer. Annapolitans are a resourceful group!!
The 15th Annual Boatyard Beach Bash to benefit the Annapolis Maritime Museum returns on September 14, 2019! Boatyard owner, Dick Franyo is on the Board of the Annapolis Maritime Museum and had a vision for a fund/fun raiser with a Jimmy Buffett/Parrot Head theme. Dick is a Parrot Head and looked hard at the Jimmy Buffett's model of selling a lifestyle/entertainment/escapism venue when he started the Boatyard. He felt that this event could be different than other local musical fundraisers and that Parrot Heads would be enthusiastic supporters.
Outgrowing the Boatyard parking lot after three years, the event was moved to the newly renovated Annapolis Maritime Museum waterfront facility in Eastport.
