If summer in the city is starting to make you swelter, maybe it’s time to get more proactive about weekend day trips. And thanks to our fabulous location, where we’re generally a short jump to anything from beaches to countryside, to historic colonial towns, to our nation’s capital, that’s a pretty easy thing to do. This weekend, you can beat the heat (kind of) by heading northwards a bit to the charming town of North East for the Cecil County Food & Wine Festival. There’s always been plenty to love about this small-town, one-day festival, but this year, they’ve teamed up with Maryland Wineries, so it’s a whole new level of awesome.
The Cecil County Food & Wine Festival takes place at the North East Community Park in the town of North East this Saturday, July 19th from 11a.m. until 6p.m. There will of course be live music, crafts, delicious foods (food is in the name of the festival, after all), and plenty of local wine available for the tasting. Also, this year they’ve added both a live and silent auction that will feature everything from jewelry to autographed guitars (by Jimmy Buffet and Kenny Chesney) to a trip for 8 to Italy. Wow. And did we mention that proceeds go toward the American Cancer Society? Day trips just don’t get better than this.
