Our Spirits Festival draws people from Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. In 2021, we had over 1,000 attending guests. We are looking for Specialty Vendors that are local, small businesses that make their own product or local artist. We are sorry, but we do not accept direct sales for the Spirits Festival. We are looking for Food Truck Vendors that can touch any culinary taste. We are looking for Local Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries. If you have a great product and you want to get it in front a new clientele, email us at for more information!
