We are excited to partner with new groups to make this event a success!

Mail-in your registration (Coolest Golf Brochure 2020) before July 7, 2020, to enjoy our early bird rate!

We came together by staying apart.

Sykesville Art & Wine Festival, on Saturday September 12, 12 to 5pm

The Downtown Sykesville Connection (DSC) decided to add to the 8 weeks confinement period implemented by the CDC to reschedule its events as a celebration of the end of confinement and commemoration of the importance of togetherness. We hope that you join us in reclaiming our Main Street, our freedom to come and go, for a giant “cheers to community” with domestic and foreign reds, whites, rosés, sangrias, wines, cavas and other specialty wines that will be available for unlimited sampling with your collectible Sykesville glass.

Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase now for $35!

Tickets will be available at the door on the event day for $40.

Volunteer for the event

The 2020 wine sampling is as exciting and diverse as our live entertainment, local artists, and food trucks display! Three different music venues, street performers and tons of local artists will await you in downtown Sykesville.  The event also showcases the local business community, embodying an atmosphere of old-fashioned, historic, small-town charm.
