Delmarva Chicken Festival is back in 2023, for the first time since 2014.
In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the first chicken farm on peninsula, the chicken festival returns this year only.
It’s happening on October 7, 2023 from 1-7pm at Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Maryland. The event is free.
The event happened every year between 1948 and 2014.
The 2023 event will focus on local food, live music and family-friendly attractions with fireworks that evening at 7pm.
“As our members started thinking about how to celebrate the chicken community’s 100th birthday, several chicken growers suggested bringing back the festival for a centennial celebration,” said Zach Evans, DCA’s 2023 board president. “We all recognized the warm welcome the festival would get, and we’re excited to invite everyone on Delmarva, and the many visitors to the region to join us for this year’s festival, in the region where the chicken industry was born.”
The Delmarva Chicken Association invites food truck operators, vendors and businesses to participate. More info can be obtained by emailing email@example.com.
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Delmarva Chicken Associations Scholarship program. The program helps those looking to go into the poultry industry.

Delaware can be it’s own world.
We share a lot of things with other states. Our water resources run through other surrounding states. The beaches are enjoyed by out of towners. Our tax free shopping is an attraction for tourists.
However, we also have a lot of things other states can’t claim. The President of the United States lives here. We are the first state. And we have a lot of slang that other folks don’t recognize.
We have so much to be proud of here in our state.
Delaware is known for its history, beaches, and its tax-friendly laws. There are various fun festivals throughout the year and sports activities you can enjoy.
The Delaware State Fair is one of the biggest and best around.
Despite being a tiny state, Delaware is diverse. Top attractions include the First State National Historical Park, Brandywine Zoo, Hagley Museum and Gardens, and Fenwick Island.
If you’ve been to any of these places then you understand the allure.
There are some things you may have heard being said while in Delaware. You may not quite understand what they meant if you are a townie. But if you’re from here, you’ll understand immediately.
