The Baldcypress Bluegrass Festival is a benefit event for Delaware Wild Lands (DWL). The festival grounds are on the scenic Roman Fisher Farm at the edge of the Great Cypress Swamp, the largest contiguous forest on the Delmarva Peninsula. DWL owns and manages almost 11,000 acres of the Swamp.
This festival is Rain or Shine. The stage and seating area will be covered under a big tent. Bring a lawn chair instead of a blanket for listening to the music.
Food trucks will offer a delicious variety to please every taste! We have a large barn and many picnic tables for indoor and outdoor eating. Stroll around and enjoy craft vendors, lawn games, and interactive exhibits.
Free bus tours through the Great Cypress Swamp will be looping all day. You can experience nature from the comfort of a bus seat. Local experts will be on hand to answer questions and talk about how DWL is restoring wildlife habitat in this unusual ecosystem.
