I had the awesome opportunity to cover the Taste Prince George’s Food & Wine Festival last weekend at Hurricane Bay at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The vendors that were there had food to purchase and the musical artist were extremely talented. I took my husband with me since he loves to attend festivals.
Majic 102.3 was broadcasting from the park with their on air personality Michel Wright in attendance. They were giving away towels which were right on time because it was 97 degrees that day.
I had an opportunity to purchase food from a few of the vendors listed below and I have to be honest, the food was really good. I was expecting more free samples, however, no one had them except Wegmans, Shoppers, Effen Liquor Running Hare Vineyard and Calvert Brewing Company.
My husband loved the beer from the Calvert Brewing Company. I tasted the dark beer and it was too strong for my taste buds.
The Wine from Running Hare Vineyard had wines that were very flavorful and my husband has already decided we will be taking a trip to see them. They even have a GROUPON that you can use right now for tastings for 2 or 4. https://www.groupon.com/deals/running-hare-vineyard

The Taste Prince George’s Food & Wine Festival was different because it was in a waterpark. Since it was so hot, I wish I brought my bathing suit because I would have enjoyed the wave pool. From people Wobblin’ to the free wine, we enjoyed ourselves and I feel this would be a great event for couples to sip and munch and then hit the water.
When was the last time you went to a wine and food festival? How was it?
