Annapolis is planning to hold a fair to highlight nonprofit groups and promote volunteer opportunities throughout the city.
The first Annapolis City Fair is set for May and organizers are now looking for participants, according to a release.
The city is working with the National Sailing Center and Hall of Fame.
They are looking for public agencies, cultural institutions, sports associations, service organizations, educational institutions, environmental organizations, neighborhood associations, sailing groups, etc., to participate, according to the release.
“Many different threads run through the vibrant tapestry of life in Annapolis,” Mayor Josh Cohen said in the release. “These threads reflect our community's diverse interests, cultures and backgrounds. I am delighted that, for the first time, we will have an Annapolis City Fair to showcase the many people and nonprofit organizations that tend to this tapestry and help so many in our community.”
According to the release, there will be no charge for the organizations and each group will need to bring their own tent. Nonprofit groups will be able to fundraise as permitted by the City Code.
There will be no for-profit venders allowed, including sale of food, beverages, arts and crafts, according to the release.
The fair is scheduled for 10 a.m.-6 p.m. May 5 and noon-6 p.m. May 6. This will take place during the National Offshore One-Design Regatta.
