Registration is closed

All ages. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

This quirky tradition began in 1978 by an Annapolis-area shipwright that was fed up with the winter weather. Now every year, groups gather to kick off the spring season by burning their old winter socks. We will enjoy s'mores and hot chocolate by the fire before officially saying goodbye to winter. Bring your warmest socks to burn!

Location: Flag Ponds Nature Park

Advanced registrations required. Please register by March 15, 2023.

Prior to participation in any Society sponsored program, we will ask each individual, if under 18 a parent, to agree to the participant waiver. The waiver agreement needs to be completed for each in-person program.
