Although we’re not quite open for the season, we’re looking forward to seeing all of our friends after this long, not-so-cold winter, and thought you might want to start planning for an upcoming visit. That being said, we thought we’d provide a listing of some upcoming events that might interest you.
For starters, St. Michaels is planning a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, Eastern Shore style! Like most other towns, St. Michaels likes to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in our own way, and we have quite an agenda of festivities planned for the weekend.
Whether you’re a local or a visitor, many make it a point to come out and celebrate St. Patty’s Day in St. Michaels, and we want you to join us! I mean, where else can you personally decorate a shopping cart and race it (with your intrepid best friend/spouse/etc. as your “passenger”!) through the center of town without being arrested? Our shopping cart races are a lot of fun, and we think you’d love it! But, if shopping cart races aren’t your style, St. Michael’s has events scheduled all weekend. There are lots of family-friendly events, and everything takes place in or near downtown St. Michaels, just a short jaunt from Wades Point Inn. Below is a brief schedule of events for the weekend:
Saturday, March 16th
12 – 2:00 p.m. Scavenger Hunt – the grand prize is a week-long stay in Key West!
12 – 3:00 p.m. Family fun and games at the St. Michaels Community Center
12 – 5:00 p.m. Catch the Leprechaun—if you can! He’s quick, but if you can catch this
1 – 3:00 p.m. Live music at Eastern Shore Brewing (Don’t forget your dancing shoes!)
3 – 3:30 p.m. Costume contest for the best Leprechaun or Irishman
5:45 p.m. Irish Wake Procession
6 p.m. Irish Wake Celebration and dinner buffet for $17 at Marcoritaville Restaurant.
And in addition to these fun events, raffle tickets will be sold all day at various locations throughout town—who knows? With the “Luck of the Irish”, you might just be the winner!
Sunday, March 17th
12:00 p.m. Drawing for raffle and announcement of scavenger hunt winners
11:30 p.m. Shopping Cart Races at Carpenter Street Saloon

Other upcoming events include:

St Michaels Running Festival, May 18th
Antique & Classic Boat Show, June 17th

We’ll be providing more information about these (and other) events as the dates draw near, so check back often.
If you’re still not sure if you want a peaceful, relaxing retreat or a fun-filled weekend, why not have both? Since Wades Point Inn is just a short road trip from Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Annapolis, you can relax with us at Wade’s Point Inn before hitting the town to join in the fun—or not! And in the morning, enjoy the awesome views of the Chesapeake Bay while enjoying local favorites at our breakfast buffet. You CAN have the best of both worlds; join us…we’ll show you how it’s done!
