There is a jampacked weekend of events and entertainment! Some friends and I are riding in the Garrett Gran Fondo… message us if you catch a Deep Creek Times jersey in the crowd! There’s music every evening, the Farmer’s Market, several interesting sessions at the State Parks … goodness, it’s gonna be a good one!

Remember to watch for Race Across America riders … they will be cruising through the county on Route 219 with a support vehicle following slowly behind. Here’s a link to the current race standings —
