Bands in the Sand is a beach celebration like no other. Each year, more than 1,600 guests gather on the beach, dance barefoot in the sand, sing along to live music, enjoy local cuisine, and raise a glass to saving the Bay. This June, we are thrilled to be celebrating the 15th annual Bands in the Sand!

Not only is this the most fun celebration on the east coast, but it is vital to our mission. Over the past 15 years, this event has raised over $3 million towards saving the Bay. Your attendance and support means we can make an even bigger impact in protecting and restoring the Chesapeake Bay in years to come.

We hope to see you on the beach this summer, singing, dancing, and saving the Bay!

2019 Event Recap

Thank you to all our sponsors, guests, volunteers, and vendors who made the 2019 Bands in the Sand such a tremendous success. This year, over 1,600 guests dug their toes in the sand and enjoyed an evening of live music, local cuisine, cold drinks, and a stunning view of the Chesapeake Bay. With this generous support, we were able to raise over $410,000 towards saving the Bay!

This memorable celebration has provided the resources needed to support a vast network of CBF programs. Thanks to our many attendees, over the next year CBF will

  • educate and empower over 32,000 students and teachers;
  • inspire 42,000 advocates to take action in support of a healthier Bay;
  • plant 21,000 trees around the watershed; and
  • plant 34 million juvenile oysters throughout the Chesapeake Bay.

We cannot wait for the 15th annual Bands in the Sand celebration in June and hope to see you there!
