SALISBURY, Md. — Sponsors, food trucks, vendors and community service exhibitors can sign up to be part of the Delmarva Chicken Festival, taking place Oct. 7 from 1-7 p.m. at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium.
The free festival will celebrate 100 years of growing chicken on Delmarva.
Those interested in being a vendor or exhibitor can find information, regulations and sign-up forms at dcachicken.com/festival.
Attractions at the event will include food vendors, an open-air marketplace, kids’ activities (like touch-a-truck exhibits, a petting zoo and bounce houses), a “Walk Through History” tent, a virtual reality tour of a chicken farm, baby chicks for visitors to hold and two stages with programming.
In addition, music will be performed throughout the day by The Jones Boys, Jimmy Charles and Mike Hines & the Look. The “Chicken Capers” contests, which pit teams of employees from Delmarva’s five poultry companies against each other in field day-style games, are returning for the 2023 festival.
A fireworks show will round out the event at 7.
