Commissioning Week Festivities May 19th – 26th

***Congrats UNSA Class of 2023***

Whether you are attending the formal Commissioning Ceremony or coming to Downtown Annapolis for the excitement of the Blue Angels, here is valuable information on traffic and parking. We strongly suggest visitors do not try to park anywhere near the water or City Dock, the best parking is along West Street in one of our Seven (7) Garages.

May 23 | 11 am – 1 pm | Blue Angels Practice and 2 PM Flight Rehearsal

May 24 | 11 am – 1 pm | Blue Angels – Circle and Arrival and 2 pm | Official Blue Angels Flight Demonstration 

City/Private Garage Parking

Parking is also available at local Annapolis garages, with transport to the Downtown via the Free Magenta Shuttle. Park at any of the garages in the West Street corridor and utilize the Magenta Bus/Shuttles. The free shuttle will get you from the garages along West Street to City Dock. Click here for the shuttle map, and click here for a live tracker of the shuttle’s route and location.

The best bet is to aim for the parking locations marked in ‘Black with a white P.’ Park Place, Knighton Garage, The Graduate Hotel, Whitmore, and Gotts all either have direct shuttle stops or stop within 2 min walking distance. All shuttle pick-ups and garage stops take place along West St., Church Cir., Duke of Gloucester St., and Main St. The closest shuttle stop for UNSA would be City Dock.

Reserve parking is available at Gotts Garage on May 23-24th, to reserve parking visit
