Midnight Madness in Downtown Annapolis

Lights, garland, action! Downtown Annapolis shops throw open their doors during Midnight Madness in a glorified block party open to all . Enjoy musical performances as well as food and refreshments at stores as you stroll along Main Street, Maryland Avenue, inner West Street, and State Circle in search of that perfect gift. Explore the uniqueness that makes downtown Annapolis so appealing at this magical time of year.

Check out blogger Alexandra Cannady’s Midnight Madness experience with friends below.

Participating stores remain open until midnight, offering bargain hunters the chance to shop well in to the night for the holiday season. Don’t worry if you missed the first night of Midnight Madness – December 8th and the 15th are two more nights to get out and enjoy a night of fun in downtown Annapolis. Put on by the Downtown Annapolis Partnership, Midnight Madness is an Annapolis favorite holiday event.

Looking to make this holiday season even more special? This year, in conjunction with the Downtown Annapolis Partnership, Visit Annapolis and Anne Arundel County is giving away three different holiday stockings the next two  weeks of December that are filled with gift certificates from Annapolis merchants.
