Gameday Tradition:
The Military Bowl Parade

City Dock
Free Admission
Friday, Dec. 27 at 9 a.m.

Join us on gameday for one of our favorite gameday traditions leading up to kickoff: the Military Bowl Parade!

The Budweiser Clydesdales are back to lead the way as we launch another exciting bowl season in Annapolis.

Last year’s event brought a fantastic crowd to City Dock and along the downtown brick streets, cheering on Medal of Honor recipients, team bands and mascots, AAYFA championship teams and many more as they made their way to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

After the parade, join us in the Official Military Bowl Tailgate in the Blue Lot on the west side of the stadium. Admission is free to both the parade and tailgate.

Route Info

The parade route travels up Main Street, around Church Circle to College Avenue, then turns left on (inbound) Bladen Street and continues along Rowe Boulevard before taking a left on Taylor Avenue and concluding at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The parade is expected to take about 1 ½ hours for all 60-plus units to move from City Dock to the stadium. Roads along the route will be closed beginning at 8:45 AM and will open on a rolling basis as the parade progresses to the stadium.

Please be aware that no parking will be allowed at City Dock or along Main Street.

For-profit businesses will be asked to purchase a parade sponsorship in order to participate in the parade. This sponsorship is $500 and includes four tickets to the game and postgame field passes or can be processed as a donation to our Tickets for Troops program.
