Love visiting the wineries around the Washington, D.C., area in the summer?

Well, now you have another reason to come out to the wineries (you know, if the wine wasn’t already enough for you). The Springfield Winery, Brewery, and Distillery will be hosting the Maryland Lavender Festival on June 17. If you’ve ever seen a field of lavenders, you know how majestically beautiful they look. Against the backdrop of the greenery and the historic structure of The Springfield Winery, Brewery, and Distillery (they really do it all), the sea of purple takes your breath away. And you can now enjoy these pretty flowers at The Maryland Lavender Festival. It will take place on Sunday, June 17, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The winery is located at 11836 Auburn Road, Thurmont, MD 21788, out in the Frederick area. It’ll cost you $20 to enter, or $25 if you want a glass of wine included in that. You can go here to purchase your tickets.

“Enjoy picturesque views, vendors, live music, food trucks, glasses and bottles of wine, pints & growlers of beer, handcrated distilled spirits, educational seminars & demonstrations. Relax in the fragrant field, photograph the scenery, and shop the artisan vendors. Gifts, plants, dried lavender, and freshly cut bundles will be available for purchase.”
It is important to mention that due to the number of people planning to attend the festival, there won’t be any regularly programmed wine tastings. There will, however, be a tasting of the much-anticipated, award-winning lavender gin. Check out more information about the festival here.
