The Festival is a great spot to meet with friends and explore the art and demonstrations. When it’s time to take a break and chat, the Waterfowl Festival now has three venues to relax with a local brew, all with beer provided by Kelly Distributing.
The “Beer Wetland,” tucked away downtown behind the Bullitt House and across from the Tidewater Inn, has been hugely popular in the past few years. The open air tent has heaters, cocktail tables and is a great spot with a downtown feel, with the street bands, people watching and delicious smells of downtown food.
The Elk’s Beer Garden is another popular spot. Grab a beer and watch the Delmarva Dock Dogs demonstration or browse through the latest sporting goods. There will also be music playing on the Sportsman’s Pavilion stage.
Last, but not least, is the new Beer Garden at the new VFW location. There will be food, a classic, service and mud truck show to browse, and a breathtaking raptor show from falconer Brian Bradley. You can even try aerial archery brought by Big Truck Brewing. While the brand has not yet opened their Queenstown location, their beer is already widely distributed on the shore, and their featured big truck with every release has been a hit.
Kelly’s Distributing has long been a sponsor and partner with the Festival for and always keeps the beer flowing smooth. Aside from Big Truck, the tap selections this year will feature RAR Brewing and Eastern Shore Brewing. Kelly’s will also offer popular canned beverages from Cutwater Spirits.
The Festival reminds you to drink responsibly!
