Darlington Apple Festival, October 1, 2022
The Apple Festival is the event of the season in Darlington, only an hour’s drive from Annapolis. This fall tradition celebrates local, with hundreds of vendors, artists, hayrides, pony rides for the kids, and a cornhole tournament. Plan to spend the day and be sure to save room in the car so you can take home an apple pie or two.
Good Beer Festival, Salisbury, MD October 14-15, 2022
If you’re a craft brew enthusiast, you won’t want to miss the only nighttime beer festival in the region. As if Good Beer wasn’t enough, there are games, live music, and plenty of good eats to keep the good times rolling. Enter the adult spelling bee on Friday or decorate your beard and enter the Good BEERd competition on Saturday. If you’re more of a spectator, check out the chainsaw carving demonstrations. Tasting tickets are $30 for early birds or $40 on the day.
