Hold Your Event at CBF
The Philip Merrill Environmental Center—headquarters for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation—provides a magical waterfront setting for your next special event. Among the world's "greenest buildings," the Merrill Center is surrounded by acres of unspoiled natural beauty. The facility offers extraordinary views of the Chesapeake Bay—both inside and out—that are unmatched by any venue in the area.
Just minutes from downtown Annapolis, the Merrill Center is fully equipped to handle a wide variety of social events and occasions. Whether you're planning an elegant, formal, or casual wedding; or a barbeque on the beach, the Chesapeake Bay is the perfect backdrop.
From our sweeping foyer and floor-to-ceiling windows to our tented deck and secluded beach, your guests will be enchanted by the simple elegance of their surroundings. Our onsite event coordinator will simplify your event planning with guidance in selecting a professional caterer, florist, and photographer who is familiar with the facility and can make all of your dreams a reality.
