“I cannot say enough about how wonderful our event was at Port Annapolis! Jenna and Scott were so kind, patient and helpful in setting up our corporate event. I needed to make some last minute changes (more tables) and Jenna accommodated us with ease. We loved using the grill and the dinghy boat cooler is quite literally the coolest bar set up ever!! The venue is beautiful with serene water views and the wonderful breeze. Our guests had a wonderful time and remarked at the beauty of the pavilion and surrounding space. Perfection!” - Sonia, WeddingWire

We had a staff party at the Pavilion, and although it was quite hot outside, the cover of the pavilion and the breeze off of the water provided a coolness to the air.
