Somehow I missed the first Spoutwood Fairie Festival at Marshy Point in
2019. Dang. Then we had a two year hiatus due to Covid.
The 2022 season was well worth the wait. The day started off a "little slow",
but by noon, the place was packed! If you were hungry, there was a 20-30 minute wait!!!
After the close of Spoutwood's 2018 season, they started looking at alternative
sights in which to continue their tradition. They settled on the
Marshy Point Nature Center in eastern Baltimore
County, off Eastern Ave between Chase and Bowley's Quarters.
Frenchie and the Punk, and
Cu Dubh were the major music attractions of the day.
Since I parked in handicapped parking because of my daughter, I'm not exactly
sure where the regular parking was, but those I spoke with said it was OK, with
a little bit of walking needed. It looks like it is probably off Brinkman
Ave, which is a little further beyond Marshy Point Rd.
Marshy Point Road is 2-1/2 miles north of where MD-43 / Whitemarsh Blvd, hits
Eastern Ave. Eastern Ave is east of both I-95 and US-40.
If you're coming in via I-95, either north or south bound, get off at the MD-43,
exit 67, and head east. MD-43 ends at Eastern Ave/MD-150.... take a left.
If you're coming down I-83, head west when you hit the Beltway/I-695. Look
for the signs for MD-43, and stay to your left, as it is a left exit off the
If you're coming in via I-70, you have a choice. You can go around the
Beltway, or go south on the Beltway to I-95 (about 3 miles), and go thru
Baltimore via the McHenry Tunnel. It will cost you an extra toll, but it
is a little quicker if you're running late and have to be there "on time".
