Fall Feast of St. Martin Nov. 1 on church grounds in Berlin

BERLIN–The Fall Feast of St.
Martin, a time to celebrate nature’s bounty at the end of the agrarian year,
will be held on the grounds of historic St. Martin’s Church on Friday, Nov. 1.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m.
and features local foods from land and sea, wines and spirits and live music.
Jazz musician Dave Hollister from Annapolis will provide entertainment.

The church will be open so
visitors can see the progress being made in the preservation and restoration
both on the interior and exterior of the building. The Worcester County Garden
Club will decorate the church in the style of the period.

Construction on the brick
building began in 1756 and finished in 1763, three years before the adoption of
the Declaration of Independence. The brick exterior still appears today much as
it did when construction was completed. Records from 1703 indicate there was an
earlier frame building, a chapel of ease, at the location.

St. Martin’s Church is
listed on The National Register of Historic Places.

Tickets to The Fall Feast of
St. Martin cost $125 per person and can be purchased by calling 410-251-2849.

The church is located at
11413 Worcester Highway, at the intersection of Route 113 and Racetrack Road in
Berlin.
