Guests and locals gather around food and culture throughout the Mid-Atlantic dining destination
GEORGETOWN, Del., Aug. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- With sweeping farmlands to the west and the rolling Atlantic to the east, Southern Delaware's Culinary Coast™ is abundant in agriculture and aquaculture. As summer beach crowds subside, energy shifts to food and cultural festivals. Fall visitors can enjoy attractive accommodation rates, comfortable temperatures, and no shortage of entertainment and dining throughout the region with events ranging from the Southern Delaware Wine, Food & Music Festival to the annual beloved Apple Scrapple Festival.
"Fall is a spectacular time in Southern Delaware, when the ocean is still warm enough to swim but the air begins to cool, local harvests come in, and the many festivals and outdoor activities create big appetites for the amazing culinary experiences to be found along our Culinary Coast™," says Scott Thomas, executive director Southern Delaware Tourism. "Both food and fun-wise, everybody will find something to savor here, whether you're visiting with family, enjoying a vacation with friends or a romantic getaway, or hankering for a fabulous foodie escape."
Festival season kicks off in September with the 44th Annual Nanticoke Indian Powwow taking place Sept. 10 – 11, 2022 at Hudson Fields in Milton, DE. The gathering celebrates traditional music, dance, Native American crafts, and food. Favorites include frybread, "Indian Tacos," and Bison Burgers.
September also brings The Festival Hispano to Georgetown, a street festival that celebrates the diversity of the Hispanic cultural heritage in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. On Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022, there will be music and dancing performed by local, national, and international groups, traditional arts and crafts, and delicious food with an emphasis on Latino cuisine.
Returning, in a new location, the 7th annual Southern Delaware Wine, Food & Music Festival will be held Oct. 1, 2022, at the Covered Bridge at Hopkins Heartland in Lewes, DE. Housed on expansive farmland, the showstopping indoor-outdoor venue will showcase award-winning chefs and winemakers and benefit local charities including Pathways to Success and Children's Beach House.
