Baltimore Wine and Food Festival Comes to Rash Field!

Foodies rejoice! The inaugural Baltimore Wine and Food festival will provide Charm City with the ultimate food and drink experience on Saturday, May 14 at the Inner Harbor's Rash Field. World class restaurants from around the area will offer the fruits of their kitchens for foodies to sample or buy, and beverages of all sorts will be served in an "All You Care To Taste" environment. 

Dates and Times:

Saturday, May 14: 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Rash Field, Baltimore

The Wine:

Over 150 local, domestic, and international wines will be available for tasting throughout the day. The beverage selection doesn't stop at just wine, however, as craft beer and spirits provide something for ever attendee to complement their food choices with. 

Come thirsty as the event maintains an "All You Care To Taste" policy, eliminating drink tickets from the equation and streamlining the libation experience. 

The Food:

Some of Baltimore's best restaurants and food trucks will set up shop to make sure that no stomach leaves unsatisfied. Seafood, Italian, barbecue, and Turkish Kabobs highlight a complete list of scrumptious edibles to take in along the beautiful Baltimore waterfront: 

  • The Local Oyster - Two local Baltimore men united in 2013 to provide the one of the freshest, best oyster experiences in Baltimore. That experiences comes to Rash Field this weekend.
  • Dinosaur Bar-B-Que - The famous Upstate New York barbecue opened up shop in Baltimore last year. Give it a go and fall in love with their melt in your mouth options.
  • The Point - This Fells Point staple will be on hand to allow you to stuff your face with seafood all day long. 
  • Portalli's - Everyone loves Italian food. Portalli's is among Baltimore's finest and will be serving its famous Beef Bolognese Gnocchi. Yum. 


A portion of the proceeds from the Baltimore Wine and Food Festival will go to support the Spirit of Hope Children's Foundation. Adults everywhere can agree there's nothing better than eating and drinking for a cause. 

Looking to get a little exercise before you dig in? A 5k run will accompany the event earlier that morning. Pre-race registration is closed but signing up on the morning of the event is certainly still an option. The race will begin at 9:30am from Rash Field itself.
