We have 2 locations to pick up your wristbands for WineFest 2018.
1. The main Ticket tent is at the St Michaels School which is on your right as you enter town. You will see a big sign directing you to make a right turn on Seymour Avenue where you can park and pick up your wristbands and tasting glasses. We will provide bus service from the school to the main tasting venues throughout the event.
2. The second ticketing location is behind Guilford Jewelers at the corner of Talbot Street and Cherry Street. Both locations open at 10:00 am so you can get your wristbands early.
The wine tasting venues will open at 12:00pm.
The best place for restaurant and lodging information is www.stmichaelsmd.com.

Free parking is available at the St Michaels School which is also our main ticketing location. Follow the signs as you are entering town then turn right onto Seymour Avenue.
You can also park throughout town in the many town parking lots or side streets.
Restrooms are strategically located throughout town.

Your admission ticket entitles you unlimited wine tasting privileges. You will also be given a stemless wine glass. There are hundreds of wines to sample. Pace yourself and don’t overindulge! Spit buckets and water are available at the venues.
