Happy 2016! Our Special Events and Regular Cruise Tickets Are Now On Sale.
Harbor Queen Food Drive
2015 Queen of All Food Drives During
Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade
Benefits the Anne Arundel County Food Bank
Saturday, December 12th. 5:30-8:30 p.m.
We are still holding the food drive from Harbor Queen at City Dock. The Eastport Yacht Club Parade of Lights has officially been cancelled due to fire at Annapolis Yacht Club but many boats will still cruise the harbor. Come out and enjoy the show of all their hard work!
Our thoughts and sympathies are with those with the Annapolis Yacht Club.
Back for 2015! View the Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade from Harbor Queen! Queen will be docked at the end of City Dock, the perfect viewing platform for the Parade. The boat will be decorated with holiday lights and festivities. For a donation of non-perishable food items, pet food items or cash donation, you will be welcomed aboard for the show. Suggested donation value per person: $10.
Additional Holiday Treats provided by Wegmans, with snacks and beverages available for purchase from the Harbor Queen’s River Run Bar – a portion of every purchase benefits the Anne Arundel County Food Bank!
Entertainment provided by The Chesapeake Revelers! Adding to the festivities, The Chesapeake Revelers will entertain our guests with great songs and stories. This group of dedicated performers from the Chesapeake Theater Company and Chesapeake Youth Players can be found in seasonal venues throughout the region. Appearing in period costume, these Victorian carolers donned in top hates, capes, holly and ribbon will wassail and make merry with all!
Sponsored by the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce.

About the Queen of All Food Drives
Along with our special guests from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, we welcome all friends and families aboard the Harbor Queen for a perfect place to watch the Lights Parade of Boats from the end of the Annapolis City dock. This yearly tradition makes a wonderful sheltered platform to cheer and photograph the decorated boats as they cruise through the harbor. Guests munch on treats from Wegman’s, enjoy hot chocolate and some adult beverages from the River Run Bar. Crew and Captain get in on the fun in their holiday attire as our “live Christmas Tree” makes merry rounds! In past years, our friends from WNAV will join us for the evening as they broadcast live from the boat – with some live interviews on air with our guests!
For the past several years, the Queen of all Food Drives has raised thousands of dollars in cash donations, bar donations, and thousands of pounds of food for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. In this county, 1 in 16 residents are below the poverty line, with over 1.3 of them children. Watermark is proud to support this effort for our neighbors in need. This fundraiser is also sponsored and supported by the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce.
