14th Annual Barnstormers Tour and Plein Air Paint Out
Saturday, September 11, 2021 “The Barns Of Burkittsville"
This popular self-guided tour of historic barns brings awareness to the public of our strong agricultural heritage and how barns were constructed to last. Barn docents will greet ticket holders at each barn location to share information and answer questions. During this time, artists and crafters will be creating at the barns. Antique farm equipment and tools will be on display. See a working dairy farm, a sheep farm, Red Angus beef cattle, donkeys and other farm critters.
From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., tour-goers are invited to a judged art show and art sale at the Burkittsville Ruritan Club, 500 East Main St., Burkittsville. Old-time music will be provided by The Main Line Gravy Soppers until 5:30 p.m. Food trucks will be at the Ruritan Club, beginning at noon, with delicious BBQ, cold drinks, and shaved ice treats.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 on the morning of the event. Children under 12 are free. Each adult ticket buyer must wear a provided wristband to be admitted to the properties.
Advance tickets will be sold, beginning approximately three weeks before the event, by the Frederick Visitors Center, 151 S. East St., Frederick. 301–600-4047. Advance “will call” tickets may also be purchased here (check back for link), then picked up on the morning of the event at the Burkittsville Ruritan Club Grounds.
