Bands in the Sand is the party of the year, and you won’t want to miss it! Each summer 1,600 guests gather on the beach, dance the night away to live music, and raise a drink to a saved Bay.

Tickets are all-inclusive and include a tax-deductible donation to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Attendees have reason to celebrate knowing their attendance and support directly fuels our mission to save the Bay. Last year we raised over $500,000 with Bands in the Sand. We hope you will join us this year and make the 2024 Bands in the Sand the most fun and most impactful event yet!
