One of our monthly blog posts on what to see, do, or where to eat on Deep Creek Lake and Western Maryland.

Autumn Glory Festival is such a beautiful time to visit Deep Creek Lake

Fall is a magnificent time in Maryland. The temperatures are cooling off; the leaves are changing to beautiful red, orange, and yellow hues, and while it might seem early to start looking ahead, the Autumn Glory Festival will be here before you know it. It’s never too early to get your lodging on the books. The festival is filled with exciting local events, parades, scenic drives, small-town markets filled with treats, and fun things to do. 

The annual Autumn Glory Festival is one of our favorite parts of each year here on the shores of Deep Creek Lake. The lovely mix of hardwood trees gradually changes color and lights up the hillsides in their vibrant shades and fiery hues. It’s the ultimate celebration of all things fall and should be at the very top of your list of things to do in Maryland this year. However, it’s a popular time to visit, so lodging properties tend to fill up way in advance. 

 You’ll also want to pick a place with stunning views to enjoy during your stay, and our lakefront Deep Creek Lake Bed and Breakfast offers this and more. The Lake Pointe Inn is one-of-a-kind with its Arts & Crafts design, welcoming hospitality, and spacious guest accommodations; you’ll be on cloud nine, surrounded by the beautiful reflection of the fall colors on the glassy lake. We’ll treat you to a delectable breakfast each morning of your stay, which is really just the icing on the cake! Don’t delay; book your fall lodging today!

Plan Ahead for the Autumn Glory Festival

The Deep Creek Lake area has been named the top destination for witnessing fall foliage in Maryland. It is not a surprising fact for those who spend their falls here. The scenery is simply breathtaking. Nevertheless, if you haven’t visited yet, this fall is the perfect opportunity for you to do so. You can enjoy your afternoons sitting by the lake, hiking, biking, and traveling the scenic country roads.

Plan your trip to coincide with the annual Autumn Glory Festival, and you will not be disappointed. Here’s what to expect this year at the 57th Annual Autumn Glory Festival: 

  1. Glorious Harvest Farmer’s Market: If you’re looking for fresh produce, locally made products, and crafts, visit this seasonal farmer’s market. It operates for five days during the festival and is located at the outdoor Mt. Fresh Pavilion in downtown Oakland. You’ll find various items, including homegrown produce, fall flowers, and delicious baked goods.
  2. The Autumn Glory Grand Parade: Join the small-town festivities with a parade, food trucks, live music, and a show! This is one of the most popular events during the festivities. 
  3. Cove Run Farm’s Corn Maze: A yearly tradition for many locals, experience the fun of weaving through the corn stalks on this half-mile maze.
  4. Autumn Glory Festival in McHenry, MD: If you’re hunting for antiques and collectibles, this fall harvest expo in downtown McHenry is an excellent place to start.
  5. Horseback Trail Rides: Circle R Ranch offers horseback rides through the bright forests of colorful leaves—advanced reservations are needed!
  6. Fall Foliage Scenic Drive Routes: There are two main routes (short and long) for the best Maryland fall foliage in Southern and Northern Garrett County. These self-guided tours are about 40 miles long and head on some of the most scenic byways around Deep Creek Lake. Each route includes landmarks like Swallow Falls State Park, historical sites, Monroe Run Outlook, the Deep Creek Lake Discovery Center, and more.
  7. Tour the Turkey Trail: There’s a fun turkey dinner tradition that coincides with the Autumn Glory Festival. In fact, the turkey growers in the area initially started this event. You’ll find a great collection of restaurants and markets offering these tasty turkey dinners
