WELCOME TO BRITFEST 2018
After a successful first year, the second annual BritFest is being staged at the Maryland Polo Club grounds in Jarrettsville on Saturday, June 9th 2018 from 11.00 a.m. – 6.30 p.m. to coincide with Queen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday and will include cultural samplings and tastings not only from England, but also Scotland, Ireland and Wales; essentially the event is designed to bring together “all things British” including the food, the beer, the crafts, the sports and the activities, as well as the cars and the music.
As part of the event, the Maryland Polo Club will once again be featuring an international polo exhibition between the USA and the UK. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The St Georges Society and go directly to their support of the Invictus Games of 2017, 2018. Tickets are limited and available at Mission Tix, https://www.mt.cm/britfest-2018

It was a beautiful (and hot!) Saturday on June 10th last year, but over 1,500 people braved the heat and came to enjoy polo, croquet, live music (Shag the Band and Beatlemania), enjoy English beer and food and a collection of classic cars. It was a great first year and 2018 will be better!
A picture tells a thousand words; here are some images from last year! Polo – USA vs UK Vendors – English treats and Live Music – Shag the Band and Beatlemania Again. Classic Cars – over 40 MG’s and Triumphs got the Classic Car element up and running - Croquet - exhibition tournament.
