Delmarva Chicken Festival - Fun For The Whole Family
Event Features Food, Fun, and Attractions for all ages
The 65th Delmarva Chicken Festival will be held on June 20-21, 2014 at the Queen Anne's County 4-H Park near Centreville, Maryland and with it comes a promise of fun for all ages. Over the event's 65-year history, it has always been designed as an affordable family-friendly event. While adults will find the historical poultry displays, car show, farmers' market, arts and crafters, commercial vendors, and non-profit exhibits of interest, there will be other activities scheduled specifically with the children in mind.
Children’s entertainment will be offered on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Friday, Snippy Doodles will be sharing her clowning artistry and balloon magic and on Saturday there will be juggling demonstrations with master juggler Carlos Mir of Salisbury. Other attractions include exotic animals, a petting barn, and pony rides. Touch-a-Truck will provide kids a close look at a variety of BIG trucks, and Scales and Tales, an environmental education program of the Maryland Park Service, will afford up close encounters with wildlife native to Maryland. And the kids won't want to miss model train displays, a popular marine display, and a "Kids' Play Zone" set up on the festival grounds.
Within the Main Exhibit Hall, baby chicks will be hatching on site and plenty of fluffy baby chicks for petting will provide great photo opportunities for parents and grandparents. Educational, take-home activities will be distributed to provide continued entertainment for the ride home.
And no matter what the age, there will be LOTS of delicious food, including chicken from the festival's well-known Giant Fry Pan, hand dipped ice cream, baked goods, and much more.
Admission to the Delmarva Chicken Festival is FREE and many of the event's attractions will be offered at no charge. Parking will be conveniently available on or near the festival grounds. For family entertainment at its affordable best, you can’t beat the Delmarva Chicken Festival!
