Delmarva Chicken Festival Is Back In 2023
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.”
Proceeds from the festival benefit the Delmarva Chicken Associations Scholarship program. The program helps those looking to go into the poultry industry.
