Western Maryland Happenings

Published: October 4, 2017

October is a wonderful month for Western Maryland—especially in Garrett County. Here are a few things we are excited to be a part of:

The GOBA 50/50 Go Greater Raffle

Oakland, Maryland is being revitalized. And CurlyRed (now located in Mtn. Lake Park, considered Greater Oakland) is very pleased to be on the GOBA Marketing Committee, to help promote what's going on in and around Oakland.But it takes funding to make a real impact. The Go Greater Raffle is all about making strides toward building a bigger economy and a downtown lifestyle that invites more hustle; bustle, and inspires our new Arts
Entertainment District to grow & flourish. Paper Tickets for the 50/50 Raffle will be sold by service clubs and nonprofit organizations before and after The Autumn Glory Feature Parade on Saturday, October 14th, 2017 and at many venues around Garrett County on Autumn Glory Weekend.

Tickets will also be sold in Downtown Oakland on the night of Octoberfest on Thursday, October 12, 2017, during and after the Fireman’s Parade.

Online Tickets will be sold, through this website. Buy your ticket to win big now!

The 50th Annual Autumn Glory Festival

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

From the website:
“The annual Autumn Glory Festival is a five-day celebration of autumn that celebrates the beauty of the local fall foliage. From Wednesday through Sunday, the area offers a wide variety of things to do indoors or outdoors. The Festival includes two large parades, concerts, band competitions, art exhibits, antique craft shows and much more!

Garrett County’s annual Autumn Glory Festival landed in the international spotlight in 2007, when the popular travel website, MSN.com listed it tops among fall festivals in the world and this year, Good Housekeeping lists our Oakland, MD among the Top 50 Small Towns with the Best Fall Foliage. And in 2014, Travel Leisure listed the Autumn Glory Festival and our own Oakland, MD as America's Best Town for Fall Colors”

Tech at the Gap

CurlyRed is thrilled to be attending this fabulous event for the first time, happening October 24th, 2017!

From the website:
“Technology at the Gap is a one-day conference for web developers, system admins, network and security specialists, managers, and others in, or around, the IT industry. Hear from engaging and informative speakers and spend time sharing ideas as you enjoy a little bit of fall in Western Maryland.”

If you're planning on attending, please contact us so we can meet up! Looking forward to meeting and connecting with new folks in the Tech space.
