Visitor Information

Welcome to Mountain Maryland! Located in Garrett County near Deep Creek Lake, our McHenry Highland Festival is filled with activities and entertainment for all ages.

Saturday at the county fairgrounds you’ll hear the skirl of the pipes and Celtic music, see traditional athletic games, and watch Irish line and Scottish country dancing. Vendors will be selling such items as handcrafted Celtic jewelry, pottery, artifacts, stained glass, handmade wool rugs and clothes, art prints, and wrought iron. Learn more about your clan history at The Glen. Check out the Celticdogs, border collies herding sheet, and Highland livestock. Enjoy a variety of food, including Scottish deli items, shortbread, and, of course, sausages, hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, and fries.

The McHenry Highland Festival will not be held in 2015.

*Note: Tickets are required for the Festival. There is no charge for parking.  General admission to the Saturday Festival includes most of the activities including concerts, but not food and vendors' wares.
