Naval Academy Commissioning Week 2015
The excitement is starting to build as Annapolis prepares to celebrate USNA Commissioning week. Each year, approximately 1000 midshipmen graduate from the academy and are sworn in as officers in U.S. Navy or Marine Corps. This year, we here at The Main & Market are celebrating with you from Friday May 15 to Friday May 22, and through the weekend as well! We are a favorite choice among family and friends and are of the preferred caterers for the U.S. Naval Academy Parents Club as well as the USNA Athletic Association.
Each year friends and family gather in Maryland’s historic state capital to celebrate the momentous week and enjoy a variety of special events throughout town. Even if you do not know anyone graduating you will surely sense the buzz in town as folk gather to celebrate. There are a variety of events scheduled, with many open to the public.
Class of 2018
On Monday, visit the Academy’s campus to cheer on members of the Class of 2018 as they attempt to climb the Herndon Monument. Witness a true USNA tradition! The Blue Angels are always a crowd pleaser, and this year promises to be just exciting. Tuesday is customarily the Blue Angels’ flight rehearsal with the air show taking place on Wednesday. Crowds gather along the banks of the Severn River on the USNA campus, at City Dock, and around town to witness the amazing aerial performance. Thursday you can head back onto campus to catch the Color Parade at Worden Field. Friday wraps up with commencement at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium and the time-honored flyover by the Blue Angels.
There is no doubt that families and friends will be gathering throughout the entire week to celebrate. Parties and backyard barbecues will be taking place all over town. Main & Market will help Midshipmen and their families tailgate in the stadium before and after commencement. Some of the signature menu items we have served in the past include donut muffins, homemade potato chips and cheddar horseradish scallion dip, spiced tea, warm basil tortellini; Maryland fried chicken biscuits with a honey glaze and their homemade chocolate chip cookies.
