There are two small town holiday celebrations the first full weekend in December. They offer tons of fun for the entire family. Each takes place Friday and Saturday, so that gives you plenty of time to experience both! They are a short 15 minute drive from the Deep Creek Lake area too.
A Great Small Town Christmas
The Town of Oakland hosts A Great Small Town Christmas, December 6th and 7th, 2019. You can enjoy numerous free and family-friendly activities in historic downtown area. It is the perfect opportunity to shop for unique gifts too.
The kick-off is a tree lighting ceremony on Friday, December 6th. It is held at the community Christmas tree (outside B&O Museum) at 6pm. Come out and join us for sleigh rides, carols, store specials, and a special treat from Santa!
On Saturday, December 7th warm-up with Soup N’ Santa! Local non-profit organizations will hand out free soup (donations are encouraged but not required). Visit with Santa at Smoke N Mirrors Photography, from 11am-2pm. Free sleigh rides are happening from 11am-2pm along with live music and local shopping.
Favorite Deep Creek Fall events happen during this quieter time of year when leaf-peepers flock to the area to enjoy the beauty of autumn. I put together a list of the upcoming festivities. If you are interested in buying or selling real estate in the area, you can contact me, Betsy Spiker Holcomb, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-616-5022.
Deep Creek Lake Lion’s Bark in the Park 5K
September 28, 8AM-10AM
In its fifth year, the “Bark in the Park” 5k race supports the off-leash dog park at the Deep Creek Lake Lion’s Club park on Bumble Bee Rd. The race is off-road and pet friendly. It starts and ends from the park.
Deep Creek Lake September events offer a reason to visit every weekend! This is a quieter time of year when you feel like you have the lake all to yourself. With the busy summer season behind us, the area takes on a leisurely pace that is ideal for relaxation with friends and family.
Deep Creek Lake Art, Wine & Beer Festival
September 7, Noon-6PM, Garrett County Fairgrounds
With more than 200 wineries, lots of craft brews and area artists on-hand, this is a favorite late summer event. It supports both HART for Animals and the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival. Plus, there is great food, live music and activities for the kids. Plan a stay with Taylor-Made, and you can get discounted tickets too!
