Navy/Marine Corps Birthday


October 16, 2017

The history of the City of Annapolis and the US Navy and Naval Academy have been intertwined for centuries, and each year we celebrate our continued partnership. The USNA is an integral part of the City’s character and charm, and the traditions of the Naval Academy and Marine Corps run deep in Annapolis.  This annual event, co-hosted by the City of Annapolis and the Downtown Annapolis Partnership, recognizes the economic, cultural and historical assets the USNA brings to and shares with Annapolis.  Students, staff and leaders of the Naval Academy, along with members of the USNA Alumni Association and Athletics Association, join with the Mayor, members of the City Council, and community and business leaders to be recognized for their contributions to the City of Annapolis and involvement in our collective community. The event is designed to build and strengthen the bonds between the USNA and Marine Corps communities and the City of Annapolis community.

The Downtown Annapolis Partnership would like to thank Historic Annapolis, Mills Fine Wine and Spirits, and Alpaca International for being our partners in providing this program.
