Decanter Wine Festival

At Decanter, there truly is something for everyone! From live racing, betting, to seminars, to craft vendors and more, there isn’t much down-time at Pimlico Race Course.

Join us for our fifth annual Decanter Wine Festival, set for the weekend of April 18-19, where we will celebrate the tradition of the growing wine industry as well as the legacy of horse racing here in Maryland. This weekend of fine wine tasting is perfectly complemented by the presence of our partner, the Maryland Jockey Club.  And once again this year, we will be hosting a “best-dressed” contest for attendees with the best Preakness attire. So pull out that big fancy hat & seersucker suit from the back of your closet and head to the races!
