We are so pleased that you’ll be joining us for Centreville’s Maryland-Made event – DrinkMaryland: Centreville. We want your stay to be fun and stress-free so we’ve created lots of parking options to get you to and from the festival as quickly as possible. All Shuttle Parking Lots and other Event Parking will be clearly marked. Here is the link to the transportation map with both our shuttle parking lot at Queen Anne’s County High School and all other parking options indicated. Simply enlarge the map and check out the various spots.
Shuttle Parking Lot (Lots of parking & 3-4 minutes from event!)
We will be running free shuttle transportation from the Route 304 entrance into town. A 14-passenger shuttle van marked Kent Island Sedan Service will operate from approximately 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will do a loop from the parking lot to the event throughout the day. You will be dropped off at the Shuttle Stop right at event check in on the corner of Broadway and Commerce Street. The shuttle lot is located at: Queen Anne’s County High School, 125 Ruthburg Avenue/Route 304 (Centreville, MD 21617) Most of you will arrive there from Route 304 W via Route 301. You can access Route 304 from both directions of Route 301. The exit is marked Route 304/Ruthsburg/Centreville. Once you get on the exit ramp continue around the traffic circle heading to 304W. Continue to the second traffic circle and follow the signs for 304W. Once you reach the second roundabout you will be 1½ miles from the High School parking lot, which will be on your right, immediately past Centreville Middle School.
Other Parking Lots
These other parking options are smaller lots, so they may fill quickly. Centreville has street parking and meter parking as well. Please be careful not to park in front of driveways. Remember you don’t need to feed the meters on Saturday.
Circuit Court Parking Garage (on Commerce Street)
If you are coming from Chestertown this will be an easy lot to access. Please note that Commerce Street is handling two-way traffic currently. Look for the brick parking garage on the right hand side of the road before you get to Broadway. Coming from the other direction, you’ll need to pass the event and make a left into the alley after Danny’s Garage.
Powell Street Parking Lot (under the Water Tower)
This is another lot most easily accessed coming up Liberty Street from Chestertown. Liberty Street is open only for local traffic. Signs will say “Road Closed/Local Traffic Only.” We are undergoing an infrastructure project so the road has a lot of character (it’s bumpy. Drive slowly.) Make a right at the Everest Mart (on the corner of Liberty and Broadway) and make the first right onto Powell Street. This is a little alley after the Goodwill Fire Company. Drive toward the water tower. The parking lot is under the tower.
Queen Anne’s County Health Department Parking Lot (Off of Banjo Lane)
This parking is behind the actual Health Department Building, which is on Commerce Street. Access to the lot is from Water Street. Water Street runs in two directions and you would turn onto Banjo Lane.
Municipal Parking Lot (At the corner of Happy Lady Lane and Water Street)
This lot is also accessible from Water Street and is across the street from the Centreville Post Office (202 E Water St.)
