The Baldcypress Bluegrass Festival is a benefit event for
Delaware Wild Lands, Inc.. The festival grounds are on the scenic Roman Fisher Farm at the edge of the Great Cypress Swamp. We own and manage more than 10,500 acres of the Swamp.
This event is Rain or Shine!
Parking will be off-site on paved lots with a free shuttle.
Parking will be at Gumboro Volunteer Fire Company with overflow parking at Gumboro Community Center.
The stage and seating are covered under a large tent. We have a barn and many picnic tables for indoor and outdoor eating. Stroll around and enjoy craft vendors, lawn games, and interactive exhibits.
New for 2017
Find a special gift in our new craft vendor area with the Dewey Artist Collaboration.  The woodworkers of Olivewood Artforms from Middletown will also be selling housewares made from trees harvested in the Great Cypress Swamp.
Explore fun and educational exhibits about Delaware’s connection to the Chesapeake Bay. A new “Science at your Door” mobile laboratory will offer a chance to get up close to microscopes, plants, and bottle rockets.
Free bus tours through the Great Cypress Swamp will be looping all day. Experience nature from the comfort of a bus seat.
Tickets available at Eventbrite.
