Save the Date: 2020 Annapolis Cup on April 18

An annual rite of spring, the Annapolis Cup brings together two starkly different schools—St. John’s College and the U.S. Naval Academy—for a croquet match like no other. The community-wide event attracts several thousand people to the heart of Annapolis on the front lawn of St. John’s for a festive lawn party complete with outrageous costumes, old-fashioned picnics, swing dancing, and, of course, croquet competition.

Thank you to all who made the 2019 event a big success.
