The ACBS Chesapeake Bay Chapter (CBC) welcomes all new members from age 1 to 100. If you join, you can become part of the largest Antique and Classic Boat Festival in the mid-Atlantic. The Annual Boat Festival is held every Fathers’ Day weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michael’s, Maryland.  This event is fun for the whole family!  Come see more than 100 antique and classic boats displayed in the water and on land, shop with our artisans and vendors, attend seminars focused on the restoration and preservation of antique and classic boats, and bring the kids to participate in some kid-friendly maritime activities.

Our members love to use their boats and explore the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and its tributary rivers!  Join us for any of our River Run events scheduled throughout the warm months. Don’t have a boat? No problem! Our members are always happy to welcome guests aboard their boats for a day of boating and camaraderie.
Our members also exhibit boats at the Bay Bridge Boat Show, the Chespeake Bay Motoring Festival held at Kent Island Yacht Club, the St. Michaels Concours d’Elegance, the Annapolis Power Boat Show and the Sultana Downrigging Festival in Chestertown. While the weather may not always cooperate, a little rain doesn’t stop us from enjoying good food and drink and the company of good friends. This is only a sample of our typical activities. Check out our calendar of events.
There are also a number of benefits provided by ACBS. Click here to find out more about the ACBS benefits and to join online. Be sure to select the Chesapeake Bay Chapter when prompted. You can hold membership in as many of the chapters that interest you. For example, many of our members are also members of the Mid-Atlantic and Sunnyland chapters.
