85th Annual Dover Days

This event has already finished but is here for your information

Join us for a Festival to Remember on Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Kent County’s Annual Dover Days Festival, one of Delaware’s largest and longest-running free events, is entirely dedicated to promoting our state’s heritage and culture.

This year, Dover Days is celebrating its 85th year!

This event is easily the biggest parade in Kent County, with  Delaware’s Governor serving as Grand Marshal.

The parade will be starting in downtown Dover at 9:30am 

Each year’s activities showcase our state’s history and heritage, as well as highlights from more contemporary times such as the parade, traditional Maypole Dancing, vintage automobile rides, games, moon bounce village, over 200 craft and food vendors, music, colonial artisans’ village and historic re-enactment groups for the Revolutionary War, WW II and the Civil War.

This is a true celebration of the first state — right in the heart of the first capital! Dover Days was placed among the Top 100 USA Events by the American Bus Association.
