Every year on the third weekend in June, Oldtown has their Annual Summer Fest. Starting at 9am on Saturday, through Sunday at 6pm, you can find yourself entwined with the rich history of this little village. You may run into George Washington, or Col. Thomas Cresap along the road. You may encounter the Shawnee camping nearby, along with the Wills Mt. Renegades' trading site. Come see Michael Cresap's house in all it's beauty, and mayhap you will see a Confederate soldier go by on his way to Virginia. Come listen to the tales of the C & O Canal, the Western Maryland Railway. Enjoy the entertainment each day as the numerous bands play everything from Celtic to Rock. There will be music all day into Saturday night, and all day Sunday. Craftspeople will be abundant, come and see their wares and take some home with you.Western Maryland Auxiliary Police will handle parking, crowd control and overnight security.
