1 Day, 4 Stages, Over 35 BandsCreated as a way to expose local music to a larger audience, Eastport a Rockin’ has drawn attendees from throughout the neighborhood and across the region for 20 years and is known as the local music festival of the summer. This year's festival includes Horn Point Marina where a fourth stage was added last year with much success. This means more than 35 bands will perform, keeping local, original music a key component of Eastport a Rockin’. Up and coming local bands with a wide range of styles will display their talents alongside longtime favorites. Over the years, Eastport a Rockin’ has featured such bands as Good Charlotte and Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, and the next big act just might be in this year’s line-up. From rock to folk to roots to blues to jazz to bluegrass to funk, and even some Kindie rock the breadth of music types found at the Festival is sure to please everyone who attends.
Proceeds from the event benefit deserving local charities including The Annapolis Maritime Museum, the Annapolis Musicians Fund for Musicians (AMFM), the Eastport Volunteer Fire Department and Eastport Elementary School. Dogs (on leashes) and strollers are welcome, coolers and outside food and beverages are not.
