Starting in 1970, the founders of the Waterfowl Festival set out to create an event that captured the true romance, excitement and heritage of waterfowl hunting in the Chesapeake Bay region. Since then, the Waterfowl Festival has become infamous for the quality of wildfowl art, the variety of activities, and that fact that the Festival draws visitors from all over the world. For three days the town transforms itself into a welcoming destination for art lovers, sporting life enthusiasts, and families.
As a completely volunteer-run event, the Waterfowl Festival showcases more than 350 artists and exhibitors – drawing between 13,000 to 15,000 attendees to Talbot County over the course of one weekend in November.
