Join us for the 30th year and celebrate the charm and character of an event that has aged to perfection! Wine in the Woods is the largest wine festival in Maryland and has been voted Best Festival in Howard County. Enjoy a glass of wine during the festival (or a bottle to share with friends) from Maryland's finest wineries. Prefer a beer? Purchase a beverage from one of the on-site, local craft breweries.

At this two-day event, enjoy great food, shopping, music, wine, and beer! Placed throughout the festival grounds are the 30 juried artisans and specialty crafters and over 20 high-quality restaurants and caterers. Bring your picnic blanket and dancing shoes as live bands play each day.

Explorer Area Is Back For Its 3rd Year: The Explorer Village wristband includes everything a ticket provides PLUS exclusive access to a premium, curated selection of Maryland-grown wine. Wine enthusiasts enjoy their day in an exclusive section of the festival with a larger glass, food options for purchase, music, seating, and separate bathrooms.

Ask about our non-tasters program. As wine/beer is being served at this festival, the target audience for this event is 21 years and over. While we welcome all patrons, this is not intended as an event for children.

Tickets are now on sale!

Tickets are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged. This event is held rain or shine. A free, souvenir wine glass is given to each 21 yrs + ticket holder upon entrance.
