Event Tickets go on sale June 1, 2019!

We are excited to announce our 4th Annual Drive-In Fundraiser on August 2, 2019 at the St. Mary’s County Fairgrounds. In addition to the showing of a popular children’s movie on a huge 60’ movie screen and drive-in style parking, our Drive-In will also feature music, concessions, arts and crafts, pre-movie activities, vendors and exhibits to create a truly memorable experience for our local families.

Funds raised will benefit The Promise Resource Center, a southern Maryland nonprofit dedicated to educating, guiding, and supporting local families.

SUPPORT: Support for this event is a great way to show the southern Maryland community that you care about the families that live here. If you're interested in sponsoring this event, please click here for additional information.

FAQ's:

How will I hear the movie?
We will have amplified concert-grade speakers for listening throughout the fairgrounds. In addition, we’ll also have FM transmitters to listen to the movie over any FM radio.

TIP: If you use your vehicle’s radio, be sure to turn your key to the Accessory position, not the Ignition/ON position, to conserve your car battery, and make sure your running headlights are turned off. Or, instead of using your car’s radio, bring a hand-held radio or download a radio application to your phone.

What happens if it rains?
We will keep our Website and Facebook pages updated for any event changes due to weather. In the event of inclement weather, all activities may be moved indoors at the fairgrounds, and the movie may be shown indoors on a smaller screen. We will make every effort to show the movie outside on the drive-in screen as planned.

What time does the movie start?
The movie will begin at sundown, or approximately 8:15pm.

Will I be able to park next to my friends, who are also purchasing Parking Passes?
Parking is first-come, first served, so we encourage you to either carpool or arrive at the same time. No parking spaces will be reserved or held open. Please note that parking is arranged by vehicle height so you may not be able to park next to friends in a different sized vehicle.

Can I sit outside my car, in lawn chairs, on a blanket, on the roof?
You are welcome to sit outside your vehicle, in lawn chairs or on blankets, but we ask that you’re careful not to over-extend your parking area into another parking space. This is for safety reasons, as an approaching vehicle might not see you or your children sitting on the ground. You may not sit on the roof of your vehicle for safety concerns as well as the obstruction of the view of patrons behind you.

Can I open my hatch back?
Hatch backs should be raised no higher than the top of your vehicle (level with your roof). If your hatch opens above your roofline, this will block the view of others. You are responsible for keeping it lowered using a rope, bungee cord, or other similar method.

I have a pickup truck or minivan, can I park backwards and sit in the back to watch the movie?
Yes, HOWEVER please conform to all of the other rules. For example, if you bring high chairs and sit in the bed of the pick-up truck, you may be sitting higher than the top clearance of your vehicle, which would interfere with other’s views of the movie.

Can I bring my own food and drinks?
Because of safety and space concerns, we ask that you not bring coolers into the event. We will have a variety of concessions available for purchase, including dinner foods (BBQ, pizza, chicken tenders), funnel cakes, popcorn, ice cream, and sodas and water. This is an alcohol-free, smoke-free event.

What if I’m running late or need to leave early?
Due to the number of small children at this event, the Drive-In parking entry gate will close at 8:30pm and we discourage Drive-In parking attendees from leaving early. In the event you need to leave early, please be courteous to other guests by leaving your headlights off until you are through the exit gate.

Are pets allowed?
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at this event.
