As we prepare for Talbot County Restaurant Week (running today through April 6), March is going out like a lion. But hope springs eternal, and we expect April to bring plenty of sunshine and seasonal temperatures.
April usually is the start of tourist season, which means everything's open, hours are longer, and all sorts of special events are taking place. But don't worry--it doesn't get that crowded around here in the springtime.
We love Oxford, the little town on the Tred Avon River. Take the Oxford Bellevue Ferry (established 1683!) over to the tiny burg to celebrate the 20th Annual Oxford Day on April 26. A delightful parade runs from 11 to noon. There's a flower basket competition, a dog show, and an open house at the Cooperative Oxford Laboratory, which will offer hands-on marine science activities and exhibits for kids and adults alike.
For adults only--WineFest at St. Michaels on April 26 and 27. Hundreds of wines will be poured, and there will be plenty of food and entertainment for those who are imbibing. All venues will be tented or under cover in case of rain. Shuttle buses will be provided to move you through town.
If you have any questions about these events or others, just ask us.
