The Deep Creek Dunk is a favorite winter event that draws big crowds to that area each year. The 2017 Deep Creek dunk is February 25 at Uno Chicago Grill/the Honi-Honi bar. Taylor-Made is a proud sponsor of the festivities that benefit Special Olympics Maryland (SOMD).
If you’re not familiar, the Deep Creek Dunk was started in 1998 with the support of the Maryland State Police and Natural Resources Police. Individuals and teams commit to “dunking” in the icy lake water and raise funds for SOMD during the months prior. The day of the event takes on a festive atmosphere with music and a costume contest keeping everyone entertained.
Here’s the complete schedule for Deep Creek Dunk weekend:
Friday, February 24
Goosebumps & Grapes – Head to the Honi-Honi from 6-10PM for an evening of fire and wine. The $20 admission goes to Special Olympics. You can get toasty around the bonfire as you taste a variety of wine from Republic National Distributing Company.
Saturday, February 25
Deep Creek Dunk: Freezin’ for a Reason – The fun starts around noon, and it is good to get there early to enjoy the wild costumes and DJ. Dunking begins at 2 and goes until the last dunker takes a dip!
Deep Creek Dunk Official Post-Dunk Bash – Black Bear Tavern hosts the after-party that has a $5 cover that goes to SOMD. Live music, a mechanical bull, drink specials and prize giveaways are just a few of the highlights.
In addition to the dunk, this is a great weekend to enjoy activities at Wisp Resort. You can ski, snow tube, snowboard, ride the mountain coaster, ice skate and much more! Experience all the fun of a winter weekend at Deep Creek Lake while you support a worthy cause.
