Mother Nature smiled on Sunday and provided a beautiful day for folks to take over Sykesville’s downtown and have a party. One of the many sure signs that spring has arrived in Carroll County are the sights, sounds, and excitement of the annual Sykesville Fine Art & Wine Festival.
This was the seventh year for the event, according to Julia Della-Maria, Sykesville’s Main Street Association coordinator. This year the festival brought about 6,000 visitors to downtown Sykesville, according to Della-Maria.
This a great boost to the “over 30 unique and eclectic businesses (in town) — many of them have received awards for their originality and success,” said Della-Maria.
