Experience Midnight Madness in Annapolis

Downtown Annapolis Partnership proudly presents Midnight Madness—an Historic Downtown Annapolis holiday tradition that encompasses the charm and character of our most beloved memories of Norman Rockwell and Charles Dickens. We will adorn the streets and participating storefronts with holiday decorations, trees, garland, snowflakes, bows and lights to create a Downtown Winter Wonderland. Residents and visitors are invited to stroll along Main Street, West Street, Maryland Avenue, State Circle and Dock Street from 6PM until Midnight to support our local businesses. When we Shop Local, we reinvest in our community and help our downtown businesses thrive. Check out all the stores, galleries and boutiques along West Street, Maryland Ave, State Circle, Main Street, Market Space, Randall Street and Dock Street.

A very special thank you to our premier sponsor, Sheehy Lexus of Annapolis for their ongoing support!
