11th Annual Elkton Art & Wine Weekend


Buy Local this holiday season! 

Elkton’s studio & winery tour is on hold this year but you can still enjoy artists’ work and find great gifts while supporting local businesses Thanksgiving weekend.

View art! A new exhibit of local artists will be in the ECEC library. 

Find your perfect gift! Farm Pickins, The Attic Goblin, and the ECEC Gift Shop are open and ECEC’s online store is now live. (The Gift Shop is open Fri/Sat only; shop online 24/7!)

Buy wine! Wineries are open for bottle sales and wine can be shipped to most states. It’s a great time to stock up and introduce friends to Elkton wines.

Eat great food! Restaurants are limited to take out during the pause. Let’s show ’em our love and get dinner to go! Some have groceries and gift certificates too.

Scroll down to check out last year’s line-up and stay posted for 2021 details coming this fall. We’ll keep this page updated and encourage you to call ahead if you’re visiting in person.

Cathy Byle's "Root and Branch" CD (2011)

“Root and Branch” is a collection of songs written between 2003 and 2010. The song style blends the troubadour’s folk ballad with a hint of operatic drama. The theme of the project was to highlight some prophetic promises God made in the Bible, prophecies partly fulfilled and yet to be fulfilled. The song entitled “Lullaby” is seasonally fitting, since it tells the story of the Nativity. Hopefully, the pieces in this recording will draw you to read the Bible prophets for yourself, to the end that you may “Know the Lord” more. — Cathy Byle

CDs can be purchased digitally on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon!
