The Byzantium Event and Conference Center
2747 Riva Rd, Annapolis, MD

A family-friendly event with local bands playing all day. Funds raised here go to support mental health programs in local schools and suicide prevention groups such as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Warrior Music Foundation. Come for lunch, dinner or all day, and have a good time.

Burgers and Bands is a fundraiser for suicide prevention. It's a community event, a party, and a wildly fun time. But most importantly it is an event with a purpose, to show people in Anne Arundel County, no matter what your age, you are not alone. There is help, there is hope, there are people who will step up, there are resources. #youarenotalone

The Nextival was created for Music-Lovers & Foodies.
We were the first event to offer Helicopter Rides and now we are also bringing in Brick & Mortar Restaurants we love + Local and Regional draft, can and bottled beer + Limited Run Libations.

This is the only event at the Fairgrounds where all the proceeds go to local charities.

We are focused on the Music more than any other local event. We find the most amazing bands and bring them to you first. Then every one else copies us.
We don’t care, We are flattered. But if you want to experience what’s NEXT… you do so at the Nextival.

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 since 1997 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.

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. Mouth-watering food, including local seafood, BBQ, shave ice and more, will be available as will thirst quenching beverages, including an array of domestic and craft beers and a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, smoothies and coffee drinks. The Kids Area, always a popular section of the festival, is expanding this yeart, with moon bounces, face painters, tattoo artists, and other great family-friendly activities, as well as a stage with Kindie (Kid Indie) rock from local musicians and showcasing some of our 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 Company and Eastport Elementary School. Dogs (on leashes) and strollers are welcome, coolers and outside food and beverages are not.

Join us at this annual fundraiser to benefit Concert For Causes Inc., a nonprofit organization raising funds to give musical instruments to students in underserved communities.

Time: TBD

Nothing signifies the arrival of spring in the nation's capital quite like the blooming of the cherry blossom trees and the three-week-long National Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the occasion. More than 1.5 million visitors descend upon Washington, DC each year to admire the 3,000-plus trees. The festival, which runs from March 20 – April 14, 2019, is full of events that honor both American and Japanese cultures and represents a close bond forged between the two countries that began with Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki’s gift of the trees back in 1912.
