The Annapolis Cup croquet match, scheduled for April 22, 2017, will be the 35th anniversary of the first competition between St. John’s and the Naval Academy. With that in mind, a few important changes have been made to the program.
Over 35 years, the event has grown from an informal reunion into a community-wide party that drew more than 7,000 people in 2016. As the event grew, cost and complexity also increased. So that we can continue hosting this beloved tradition in a sustainable way, this year the college will set an attendance cap of 5,000 and sell $10 tickets for admission.
Proceeds of ticket sales will benefit student financial aid at St. John’s College.
Free weekend parking is available at the state garage at the corner of St. John and Calvert streets. Paid parking is also available at other nearby city lots: Noah Hillman Parking Garage (Main Street), Gotts Court Parking Garage (250 Northwest Street), Whitmore Garage (37 Clay Street), and the Naval Academy Stadium (shuttle bus available).
