Local Events Highlight the Rest of 2017 on Delmarva

With Spring having finally arrived here on the Delmarva Peninsula, it’s again the time of the year when everyone starts thinking about outdoor activities and enjoying the best that southern Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland have to offer.

And we here at the Whayland Co., are certainly no exception. So in an effort to make sure that everyone has some of these important local events saved on their calendars, we’re going to highlight a few of the area’s biggest upcoming festivals here for you today.

In truth, there are dozens of great local festivals on Delmarva, but there’s no way we could possibly mention all of them. But what we can do is tell you about some of the biggest and most widely attended ones that are coming up on the calendar.

And keep in mind that this is anything but a comprehensive list, but merely a collection of some of the largest festivals the area has to offer. For more information, we recommend you visit the local Chamber of Commerce and/or Visitor’s Center in your town, to learn more about everything that’s happening on Delmarva for the rest of 2017.

We’ll also be writing about many of these events in our bi-monthly electronic newsletter, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages. So be sure to follow us regularly to keep up to date on everything that’s happening, not only with Whayland but also here in the local area.

We hope you enjoy the nicer weather and get out there and enjoy everything that makes living here on the Delmarva Peninsula so great. And be sure to check back here on our Blog Page soon for more news about local happenings, as well as Whayland and the commercial construction industry.
