National Harbor celebrates the season with a Food & Wine Festival from 1 to 6 p.m. both May 3 and 4, 2014. (National Harbor is located on the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, Maryland.)
The event includes tastings, cooking demonstrations and educational seminars on culinary and wine trends, sustainability issues, and supporting local farmers and resources. There’ll be more than 150 wines from around the world, spirits and beers. Road Trips Foodies can sample any or buy them by the glass and the bottle.
Other highlights include a Cinco De Mayo Pavilion featuring Hornitos tequila, a craft beer tasting Bier Garten experience plus a whiskey and bourbon tasting experience paired with hand-rolled cigars. Oh, yes: there will be three stages of live music and smooth jazz.
Admission at the gate is $48 ($40 for designated drivers) per day. Ages 12 and under are admitted free.
