Description

ShadFest is a FREE annual family-friendly celebration of the Brandywine River and the return of the American Shad. Over 1,500 people attended ShadFest in 2022, an increase of 300% over 2021.

Attendees participate in interactive, educational exhibits from 20 of Delaware’s leading environmental organizations, enjoy live music, a 5K, sustainable vendors, food, shad obstacle course, arts and crafts, and a lot of fun!

This year we are hosting our first ever Brandywine River ShadFest Art Contest! The contest is limited to students in 3rd – 12th grade who attend schools in Delaware. Works or art will be displayed at and voted on during ShadFest 2023. Guest judges include Delaware’s very own Eunice LaFate!   More details to come.
