When is the festival?

October 14-15, 2022

What is the GPS address of the festival for driving directions?

Events will be located throughout Downtown Chestertown, generally all within walking distance of each other. A detailed map of events will be made available closer to the event. One central location will be the Garfield Center for the Arts (our “Magical Home-base”) The theatre’s address is: 210 High St., Chestertown, MD 21620. While there is no parking area designated specifically for the festival, there is free parking throughout the downtown area. Check out our map from last year’s festival in the Pensieve section to get an idea of how things were set up last year.

Where can I find accommodations?

Local hotels and B and B’s can be found in the area. We recommend booking your rooms immediately if you plan to spend the night. September and October weekends in the Chestertown area are popular for weddings, sailing, and outdoor enjoyment so we also suggest looking into accommodations in nearby towns such as Rock Hall, Chesapeake City, Kent Island and Easton (in Maryland), and Middletown, Dover and Newark (in Delaware).
