Fall Is In The Air...

The months have turned, too quickly, and here we are in September...

Even though the "official" summer season ends with the celebration of Labor Day, Deep Creek Lake is still in full swing with plenty of good weather and great events to enjoy in the coming weeks and months.

We have had a perfect first week of September with temperatures reaching above 80 degrees and only a small amount of precipitation to deal with. But honestly, who doesn't love late summer rain?

However, as we see the leaves start to change, we know that summer's days are numbered. Enjoy them while you still can, and start to look forward to the beauty of Garrett County's fall foliage, tons of events and festivals, and pumpkin everything... 
Oakland, MD is's America's #1 Best Town for Fall Colors!

The first festival in the lineup takes place this weekend. The annual Deep Creek Lake Art and Wine Festival will kick off on Friday, September 5 with wine pairing dinners at many of the area's finest restaurants. Then the main event will take place on Saturday, September 6. And don't forget to stop for Sunday brunch before you leave town! If you want to attend the festival then Deep Creek Realty has got what you need. You can buy a premier festival package in our Vacation Rental Office. For $45 you will recieve a $25 gift certificate to the Friday Night Wine Pairing Dinner of your choice, and get 1 ticket for Saturday's Festival. Individual tickets can also be purchased at Coldwell Banker Deep Creek Realty for $25 each.  

Next weekend, September 12-14, brings amazing athletes to Garrett County to battle for the title of SavageMan (Or Woman of course). The SavageMan Triathlon Festival is a two day run, bike, swim event has been ranked as the world's Hardest Triathlon. All fundraising efforts are in support of melanoma research. 

Finally, we look forward to an incredible, international event, the likes of which have only seen US soil one other time, 25 years ago, right here in Garrett County, Maryland.

Deep Creek 2014 is set to host the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships, right here in McHenry, Maryland from September 17-21, 2014. 

The Adventure Sports Center International is the prestigious venue for the event and is the world's only re-circulation, mountaintop whitewater course.

Witness History! 
Olympic level athletes from over 35 countries will be here, in Garrett County, competing for gold!

This Whitewater World Championships represent much more than a simple competition. It is a gathering of nations from around the globe, joining together in sport and in camaraderie.

This 25 year anniversary of the 1989 World Championships, also held here in Garrett County, is only the second time in history that this incredible event has taken place in the United States.
