Delmarva Chicken Festival to End in 2014

Posted:
CENTREVILLE, Md. - The Delmarva Chicken Festival is making its last run this year after 65 years on the Delmarva Peninsula. The Delmarva Poultry Industry Inc. says the time has come to find a better way to promote awareness of the chicken industry.

The festival has been a favorite on Delmarva each June since 1948.

Officials say the festival's final run will be June 20-21 at the Queen Anne's County 4-H Park near Centreville. Delmarva's giant 10-foot large frying pan will be among the many attractions at the final festival this year. In addition to the frying pan and a variety of other food options, there will be baby chicks, commercial exhibits, arts and crafts, educational and historical poultry displays and much more.
