“As festival co-founder Ron Peremel, a certified watershed steward, explained to Live For Live Music of the event’s unique conservation focus, ‘Everybody in this area, they care about the watershed of the Chesapeake Bay. They play, swim, fish, boat, crab in it. They’re economically affected by it. It’s a really important thing that people care about, but don’t know how to fix it.'”

2023 Baygrass Festival Press Coverage:

Inaugural Annapolis Baygrass Festival Already Feels Like Home: REVIEW

Baygrass became a verb.  An action, a state, an occurrence.  When we chose to attend Baygrass, we chose to Baygrass.  We were committing to not impacting the environment with our festival activities.  We were accepting that the Chesapeake Bay needs to be protected and restored. We were supporting the mental health of our friends, family and community. “
