Maryland Wine Festival @ Carroll County Farm Museum
Sep 18 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Fine wine, great music, fabulous food and unique crafts – The Maryland Wine Festival offers all of this and so much more. Over 30 Maryland wineries are gathered here so that you may savor your favorite vintages, expand your palate and add new Maryland wines to your repertoire. This year we’ve added some great new activities and expanded our food offerings and even added more one-of-a-kind crafts. So lay out your blanket or set up your chairs and join us for a weekend of music, food, fun and most of all: Maryland wine.
