Hanging of the Greens

Join us as we decorate downtown Annapolis for the Holiday season. It is an annual tradition for the Jaycees of Annapolis to decorate storefronts of local downtown businesses with lighted garland and wreaths. We separate into teams and work together to hang greens that will light up Annapolis at night. A secret party location is revealed to all who help to celebrate at the end of the day.


The Bladen Street Garage is free on weekends and the garage on King George will also be free for 9 hours, so either of them are good options!

Make sure to dress warmly, bring/wear gloves because you will be handling fresh greenery and nails/wires! Don’t forget hats and other warm clothing, as well as any beverages of your choice to keep you warm throughout the day!

We will also have pizzas provided by Mangia downtown mid-day!

Thanks so much for volunteering, and bring your friends! We look forward to having a great turn out for this year’s Hanging of the Greens!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Help make our town beautiful with an awesome after party for those who participate.
