The Autumn Glory Festival is one of the most popular events in the Deep Creek Lake area. It draws thousands of visitors to the area each year. In fact, it was named MSN’s number one fall festival in the world!

So, what is all of the fuss about? Aside from admiring beautiful leaves, there are tons of fun activities for the entire family to enjoy.
History of Autumn Glory
Before it was known as “Autumn Glory”, it was actually a turkey festival. Local turkey growers started an annual event to promote turkey dinners. In the 1960s, folks started to think about turning it into a larger festival. It eventually evolved into the extravaganza that we know today. Of course, turkey dinners are still part of the tradition!

-Thursday night, enjoy German-style dinner and drinks from 4-7PM at the Oakland Fire Hall. Afterwards, you can watch the Fireman’s Parade that starts at 7PM. Continue reading Gearing Up for Autumn Glory at Deep Creek Lake
