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 above.

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.
