If you are new to the area, perhaps you haven’t heard about one of the biggest music festivals in the country, which just happens to be right down the road. Musikfest has great, free music at 14 of the festival’s 15 stages. Walking around, listening to the music drifting past, you can also find fine art and hand-crafted items at the Handwerkplatz (outdoors by the banks of the Monocacy Creek) a wide range of food and drink, and a special area set aside for kids activities and music.
August 3 – 12, 2012
