After last year’s cancellation because of COVID-19, Tides & Tunes has resumed for Summer 2021. Presented by Annapolis Maritime Museum (AMM), this concert series showcases live music every Thursday night at 7 p.m. from June to August.

This annual Annapolis event gets into full swing by the 4th of July weekend. Bands perform a fun and eclectic mix of music, and get people to stand up and dance on the sand.

Bringing Annapolis Together


Tides & Tunes was organized by the AMM as a way to foster feelings of community in Annapolis and raise awareness among local residents regarding the activities and programs sponsored by the museum. Come listen to the music while gazing at a gorgeous view of the bay.

Food, wine, mixed drinks, and beer may be purchased at the event. The funds raised from sales support AMM’s environmental programs at its Education Center. Alcohol purchased outside the grounds and coolers are prohibited. For seating during the outdoor concerts, the museum recommends that guests bring lawn chairs or blankets.
