Autumn: A Magical Season at Deep Creek Lake
We watch in awe as the leaves change colors and fall from the trees and we make the switch from t-shirts to sweaters. But scenery and temperature changes make up only part of what makes fall so very special.
Apple cider, fall festivals, pumpkin spiced anything, and holidays galore keep us swept off of our feet from September to December.
The Inn at Deep Creek is a marvelous spot to enjoy these seasonal transformations, as it rests in the center of the magic.
The Deep Creek Lake area is known across the country as one of the best towns to experience the beauty and colors of fall. In fact, our area is included on Good Housekeeping’s 50 Small Towns Across America with the Most Beautiful Fall Foliage.
Nestled in Garrett County, the Inn at Deep Creek shines throughout autumn.
Oakland, MD, and the surrounding towns have plenty of great activities for the season, including an abundance of local antiquing and restaurants – and of course, the Autumn Glory Festival. That said, if you’re not one for exploring, kick back in any of our hotel’s cozy rooms! Check out this list to find the right fit for you.
Autumn Glory Festival is a Deep Creek Lake area tradition.
According to the Deep Creek Lake Area & Garrett County, MD official website, “The annual Autumn Glory Festival is a five-day celebration of autumn that celebrates the beauty of the local fall foliage.”
Past festivals have included car shows, craft shows, fiddle competition, fall foliage driving tour, Oktoberfest, Turkey Trails, and a Grand Parade to close out the 5-day celebration! This year, guests can enjoy much of the same fun, as this ever-evolving tradition continues to draw crowds of more than 60,000.
This well-loved festival has received plenty of accolades, much like the surrounding area. In 2007, renowned travel site MSN.com listed the Autumn Glory Festival as the top fall festival in the world!
The Travel Channel has also featured our local festival and even produced a short video about Autumn Glory Festival, as well as a 2019 podcast.
Fall is a magical time in the Deep Creek area. The 52nd Annual Autumn Glory Festival is the place to be from October 9-13, 2019. Explore the fairgrounds with your loved ones and enjoy the autumn festivities around you! And if you can’t make it, there’s always next year 😉
