Annapolis' Home-Grown Local Music Festival On Back Creek and Second Street in Eastport Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 11am - 8pm
1 Day, 4 Stages, Over 35 Bands!
Created 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. 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 (Kid Indie) rock the breadth of music types found at the Festival is sure to please everyone who attends. With an unbeatable location surrounding the Annapolis Maritime Museum on Back Creek in Annapolis' historic maritime district of Eastport, this daylong festival offers everything an attendee could want. The Kids Area, always a popular section of the festival, is expanding this year, with moon bounces, face painters, tattoo artists, and other great family-friendly activities, as well as a stage with rock from local teen musicians. 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.
