City Dock Productions: Owner Jim Barthold first came to Annapolis in the 70s to help create the world famous U.S. Boat Shows. After accomplishing this feat and running the immense event for years, Jim started two more Annapolis events: The Annapolis Arts, Craft, & Wine Festival and the Annapolis Craft Beer & Music Festival. Over the past eight years, City Dock Productions has grown these festivals into some of Annapolis’ most anticipated events of the year, bringing in visitors from all over world to our beautiful city.
