Admission to the festival is FREE, but there is a cost for the tastings.

If you plan to take metro, please be aware that the Rockville Metro Station (which is across the street from the festival) will be closed for track work during Memorial Day Weekend (Sat, Sun & Mon), along with Shady Grove Metro Station (both are on the red line).
Free shuttle buses (through metro) will operate between Twinbrook Station (red line), Rockville Station (red line) and Shady Grove Station (red line), so plan for delays. Once you get off the shuttle at the Rockville Station, go to the Rockville Pike (Rt. 355) side of the station and follow the music to the festival. I will then provide you directions on where we will be meeting.

    A nice festival in a nice venue. I would suggest the HTH planners incorporate more activities for adults and more festival-type activities (art/craft/premium good vendors). Great food at great prices, parking was easy & plentiful.

      I had added that in the event description when I first created the event (Metro lists their Track Work for 2013 on their site). Thanks for reminding folks.

    i've perused the website and the map and there's nothing on there to say (1) where exactly the festival is located (except "town square", wherever that may be) or (2) no address or coordinates for GPS. does anyone know the exact address of this place? thanks in advance...
