Wicomico County’s Autumn Wine Festival returns Oct. 15-16

Salisbury, MD – The Autumn Wine Festival returns to Pemberton Historical Park on Oct. 15 and 16. The event is produced in partnership with the Maryland Wineries Association, and offers festivalgoers the opportunity to taste unlimited samples from nearly 20 Maryland wineries.

The Autumn Wine Festival has also partnered with Women Supporting Women (WSW), a locally-based non-profit, which strives to provide awareness, education and support to those affected by breast cancer. WSW will be on-site all weekend hosting a variety of fundraisers under their Pink Party Tent.

The festival also features live music, regional cuisine, local artisans and craft vendors.

Tickets for the festival are on sale now. Tasting tickets include a 6 oz. glass and as many samples as one can responsibly consume.

Early bird tickets are available for $25 for one day or $40 for both days. Regular tickets are $35 for one day or $60 for both days. Non-tasting tickets are also available; early bird non-tasting tickets are $5, regular non-tasting tickets are $10. Early bird sales end online, in person and by phone on Friday, Oct. 7, at 6 p.m. Additional fees may apply to ticket prices. Ticket buyers also have the option of making a donation to WSW at checkout.
Tickets can be purchased online at or at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center Box Office, located at 500 Glen Ave. in Salisbury (Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–6 p.m.). The Box Office can also be reached at 410-548-4911.

well hopefully there will be more winery's there this year. Each year it gets fewer and fewer. hardly worth the entry price any more!

Are there any activities available in Wicomico county that DON'T include alcohol consumption for those of us that don't drink??

Been getting worse and worse every year. Not worth the price, the vendors very stingy with samples, tiny little sips. My wife and friends all left very early bored, didn't even bring home any bottles. Certainly not like it was 5 years ago! Everyone had a blast, and lots more wineries and lots of great bottles were bought that day. Thanks for the memories, but this event is done.

Better to go directly to a Winery like Layton's chance. Much better time, and they aren't stingy with the wine. Very reasonable as well!

Yea that's the rational solution drive to Vienna to drink wine then drive back, potentially expense trip

9 am Whats the difference? Get smashed at either place. At Laytons you can hang out there all day if you want, have lunch there and sober up, or have someone not drink and drive you back.

I have a question? Does the recreation and parks department have a satellite park on S.U. Campus? Reason I ask, Almost daily I see one of there trucks with oval geese on the door #13 on the east side of the campus near the sports complex.

There is a zoo, a river and a library or you could volunteer at the hospital or a nursing home. Wanna have fun, start drinking again.
