About the MRE

MRE, the Maritime Republic of Eastport, is an enlightened democracy based in the Eastport neighborhood of Annapolis, Maryland, has become a force in the community since its founding on Super Bowl Sunday 1998. Doing good for the community and having fun at the same time – “fun with a purpose,” is our mission, albeit with a quirky and sometime bizarre way of carrying it out.
