Looking for an autumn getaway experience that’s not far from home? Look no further than Washington County!

Fall is one of the best times to visit. The region is jam-packed with activities that highlight the very best of Washington County. The county’s tourism fall line-up kicks off with the 2018 Corks and Kegs Festival at The Meadows Casino Racetrack Hotel on Aug. 25-26. The weekend features regional and local craft beer and wine, plus live music, 20 food trucks, artisans and vendors. 

“The Corks and Kegs Festival is a great way to toast the late summer and a wonderful time to welcome Washington County’s fall festival season,” said Jeff Kotula, president of the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency. “In fact, fall is one of the best times to visit Washington County, with events such as the West Alexander Fair, Canonsburg Oktoberfest, Houston Pumpkin Festival and Hickory Apple Festival. It is also the perfect time to connect with the changing seasons by getting outdoors on our award-winning trails or, for a different view, from one of our beautiful waterways.”

September also highlights Washington and Greene counties’ rich history with the Washington and Greene Counties’ Covered Bridge Festival presented by EQT.

“It’s one of our signature events,” Kotula said. “We look forward to welcoming visitors to Corks and Kegs, as well as all this autumn season.” 

The agency is sponsoring a special giveaway package that would enhance the winner’s experience at the 2018 Corks and Kegs Festival. The Room With A Brew Contest features prizes and packages from Buford’s Kitchen, The Washington Brewing Company, Lone Pine Country Club and The Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe.
