Do you remember when the Delmarva Chicken Festival came to Easton, Maryland in 1982? This Talbot Historical Society Collection photo is of the Tuckahoe Steam Show Tractor in front of the Talbot Historical Society on Washington Street during the Delmarva Chicken Festival Parade. Can you identify any of the people on the tractor? According to the Delmarva Chicken Association website the Delmarva Chicken Festival was a long running event from 1948 to 2014
This year the Delmarva Chicken Festival will return on October 7, 2023 1-7 pm at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Maryland and will be free and open to the public!
