Historic St. Mary’s City BeerFest


In 1634 two historic ships, the Ark and the Dove, brought the first settlers to the Maryland colony.  After deeming themselves the luckiest colonists in the new world, we are pretty sure they celebrated with the first official Historic St. Mary’s City BeerFest!


Join us every summer for lots of food, fun and local flair!  The beer is provided by local breweries, and as you enjoy the refreshing beverage listen to the music of local performers. Lots of good food from local restaurants and handcrafted items by local artists will keep you coming back every year!
