Deep Creek Lake Art & Wine Festival

September 12, 12-6PM


The 16th annual Deep Creek Lake Art & Wine Festival, benefiting HART for Animals and Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF), features beautifully handcrafted works by local and regional artisans, more than 200 wines to taste from  Maryland and national wineries, a lounge to watch college football games and purchase beer on tap, a cigar bar, live entertainment, food, silent auction, wine store, wine pairing dinners, lodging packages and more, all set in the beautiful mountains of western Maryland.          

We want everyone to be happy! We have learned from our mistakes: beer and wine don't mix! And while we tried for two years, we think it's time to retire the beer tent. We'd rather be doing what we've done right for 15 years, than continue to make you unhappy. The truth is, we have to buy the beer we sample and when a case is broken from a purchase, we also have to eat the cost of the left over case. As two nonprofits, it doesn't make sense. And you get mad because we run out of samples quickly. But, we will have a football tent and we will have local craft beers on tap!
