St. Mary’s County is a great place to live every month of the year, but it’s particularly beautiful in the fall when the leaves start turning and the air gets crisp. There are many different ways to celebrate the season, whether you’re looking for delicious bites or a way to experience the area’s unique history. Here are some of our favorite picks for St. Mary’s County fall activities.
Southern Maryland Heritage Festival
The Southern Maryland Heritage Festival is a two-day festival, October 7-8, that gives residents a firsthand look at some of the history of the area. At the festival, you can purchase wares from skilled artisans, try local foods, sample spirits, enjoy live music from local bands, and enjoy family-friendly activities.
Taste of St. Mary’s County
Are you ready to find your favorite local restaurant? The Taste of St. Mary’s on September 30 is a great way to try many delicious treats from local bakeries, restaurants, and food purveyors. For even more fun, you can enjoy classic cars and kid-friendly entertainment. Admission is free, but you must pay to purchase food from the restaurants and food trucks.
Mary’s County Fair
Your fall activities are not complete without a county fair, and St. Mary’s County Fair is four days of fun at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds. This is a traditional fair, so you can expect to see home arts competitions, gardening competitions, educational displays, and farm animals. You can also take a trip to the midway to enjoy rides and games. There will also be plenty of delicious fair food and local music if you want to kick up your heels and dance.
The 56th Annual US Oyster Festival
St. Mary’s County is home to the 56th Annual United States Oyster Festival, which is taking place this year on October 15 and 16 at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds. This event is fun for the whole family and great for oyster enthusiasts and those looking to try fun local food.
