What You'll Get
The modern festival evolved from ancient Dionysian celebrations, where wine and food provided laborers with a brief respite from their jobs peddling anti-aging serums to immortals. Escape everyday toil with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two days (June 11 and 12, from noon to 6 p.m.) of unlimited wine tastings, cooking demonstrations, live music, and a souvenir wine glass at Great Grapes! Wine, Arts & Food Festival in Cockeysville (a $35 value). Designated-driver tickets are available for $15 advance online or $20 at the door (includes admission only), and children 12 and younger receive free admission with an adult.
Roam through Oregon Ridge Park and stop by each of the participating wineries' exhibits to sample sips from 20 Maryland vineyards. In addition to liquid displays, Great Grapes! hosts an impressive assortment of exhibitors that will introduce visitors to culinary gadgets, as well as an assortment of local arts-and-crafts vendors who will happily provide inspired gift ideas for super-early holiday shoppers. Postbrowsing, check out the main-stage live musicians, including Junkyard Saints and the Kelly Bell Band. Check out Great Grapes!'s entire entertainment schedule to further map out the weekend or yet-to-be-discovered land masses.
