The Reisterstown Festival – one of the last big events of summer in Baltimore County- *before* fall season arrives- is at our doorstep! Spread the word!: The 34th Annual Reisterstown Festival – the biggest summer event in our area – happens THIS WEEKEND! (Sept 11-12) We will bring summer to you, as always, on the weekend after Labor Day Weekend,-the unofficial “traditional” end of Summer, much-like Memorial Day Weekend is the nation’s unofficial start of the Summer season. With our timing, we help give area residents an “extra weekend of summertime”, and this is why we claim and are known for being “Where Summer Lasts a Week Longer”.
So plan for THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY being full of SUMMER FUN including our famous PARADE, 2 full days of some of the finest LIVE BANDS in the Mid-Atlantic region (seriously!!), FIREWORKS (Sat @ ~8:45pm), almost nonstop daytime FAMILY SHOWS & fun for kids, teens, and adults(!), lots of FOOD, A BEER GARDEN, a wide variety of VENDORS, a DJ/karaoke tent, laser tag, and so much more.
AND…. Don’t fret about tickets!! Admission is $0.00 (NO CHARGE) to enjoy our ONCE-A-YEAR GREAT PUBLIC EVENT. You can just walk right in to Hannah More Park (or to the parade route, if that’s your destination) and find free parking nearby (or if you park onsite at the Festival Grounds, you’ll be given the opportunity to help us with a small but very appreciated donation.). Of course it’s not all free: food, beverage, vendor goods, raffle tickets,and things like face painting and certain special activities- may often involve a modest fee or cost. There will be an ATM near the Festival Tent which is close to the Main Stage on the lower Main Field – if you need it.
PLEASE keep in mind that festival features with a potential cost like onsite parking, soda/water/beer garden, raffle tickets, raffle baskets, etc. are our main sources of funding. We are not simply funded by a state of county budget item; we are program of an independent non-profit (The Reisterstown Recreation Council) and we raise 100% our budget thanks to your support, our terrific vendors, and our generous sponsors, etc. With this plan, we’ve succeed in presenting this festival 33 times! SO please continue to attend and support our vendors, raffles, parking, etc. You can feel good about helping to continue this long-running special Reisterstown-area tradition! The Festival, our friends and supporters in the Reisterstown community as well as in adjacent areas- Baltimore City and County, Carroll County, and beyond- our vendors, and everyone who comes out and has a great time thanks you in advance for your support of THIS WEEKEND’S FESTIVAL! YOU make it happen!!
