Wine in the Woods on May 16-17 (Columbia, MD)

Each year Howard County Recreation and Parks hosts Wine in the Woods, an outdoor wine festival in Columbia's Symphony Woods next to Merriweather Post Pavilion. This year the event will be on May 16-17, 2015.

Started in 1991, Wine in the Woods now welcomes over 25,000 attendees each year with over 30 wineries from across Maryland participating.

Wine education seminars are included with the admission fee, and there are also Wine Check locations where patrons can leave purchased bottles of wine so they don't have to carry them around.

The festival also includes artisans and crafters, live bands on two stages, and food vendors.

There will also be a Wine in the Woods 5K Run in Centennial Park a week prior to the festival, on Saturday, May 9th.

Tickets for each day can be purchased in advance for a discount or at the gate ($40 for wine tasters, $25 for designated drivers). Although this event is oriented toward adults over 21 years of age, youth tickets (ages 3-20) are available for $25.

Free parking is available at the Merriweather Post parking lot and also at auxiliary satellite parking sites in Downtown Columbia.
