Looking for something to do next weekend…Savage has you covered. Savage Fest 2019 is happening on June 1, 2019. Here is some info from their Facebook event:

The 32nd annual Savage Fest promises a day of fun for all ages and a chance to meet friends old and new. Originating in Savage Days festivities from the 1920s, Savage Fest conveys the charm and vibrancy of the small town of Savage, MD. The celebration takes place on Baldwin Common with live music, dance performances, pony rides with D&D Pony Rides, a petting zoo, an antique car show, giant bubbles, games, crafts, vendors, food and more. New this year – more family-friendly activities, plus a pet parade for pets of all kinds! Check out the full schedule below.
