Just as the daffodils start blooming, the list of outdoor Chestertown, Maryland events starts to grow longer. The third week of April is chock full of interesting things to do here in Kent County.
The 6th annual Paint the Town event, sponsored by Chestertown RiverArts, features 50 artists (50!!) from all over the east coast descending on Kent County from the 23rd to the 26th to paint “en Plein Air”- the river scenes, streetscapes and landscapes that are so abundant here. (Fancy French words meaning artists will be painting outside!) You will be able to see works of art take form, and then bid on them a few days later!
The 8th Annual Taste of the Town (& County) is on Sunday April 26th, from 12 to 3. This is a highly anticipated and well attended event that gives folks the opportunity to sample dishes from area restaurants. Adult beverages are available as well.
On Friday April 24, kids of ALL ages can enjoy Trout Fishing in America at the Mainstay in Rock Hall. An award winning duo in the world of children’s music, but highly entertaining for adults as well, these guys have been going strong for 30 years!!
Almost every weekend there is at least one event or festival happening somewhere in the vicinity of the Brampton. But even when there isn’t some special event, a trip to the farmers’ market can always fill in. The market in Chestertown is always bustling and filled with activity. Or take a ride down Route 20 to Rock Hall and visit the market there and then take a stroll on the beach.
This is assuming of course that you want to get up from your perch on the porch. Remember, “front porch surfing” is a highly refined art as well. Several of our guests are quite adept at it. Come and visit the Brampton and we’ll give you some pointers.
