Day Tripping on the Potomac: 5th Annual National Harbor Wine and Food Festival

Queen of Southern Cooking - Nathalie Dupree
 
National Harbor’s Wine and Food Festival is back for the 5th time, Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th  from noon to 6 p.m. each day.  The advanced weather forecast calls for partly sunny and the temperatures in the mid 70’s – an ideal day for drink, food, fun and sun. It’s a short day trip about fifty miles from my home in Baltimore County to National Harbor located on the Potomac River. There are weekend packages available for those who really want to extend their getaway.

 This year’s festival will include over 150 International wines, spirits and beers featured along with local and regional favorites.  Guests will be able to sample all of the varieties as well as purchase them by the glass and the bottle, on-site at special event only low prices. Beyond the drink tastings there are many other highlights which include: a Cinco De Mayo Pavilion featuring Hornitos tequila, Special craft beer tasting Bier Garten experience, Whiskey and Bourbon Tasting Experience in a relaxed setting - paired with hand rolled cigars, three stages of live music and smooth jazz, and so much more.  It is the largest wine festival of its kind in the Metro DC market.
