About the Festival

Join us for a family-friendly day of fun-filled activities, including music, storytelling, folk art, and food.

The star of the festival is one of Delaware’s native trees, the Pawpaw! Alapocas Run State Park has the perfect habitat for the Pawpaw tree, the single food source for the caterpillars of the gorgeous Zebra swallowtail butterfly.

If you are a local folk artist, the Pawpaw Folk Festival is an exciting way to spend a summer day and get your work seen by the public. Folk artists that we usually look for include, but are not limited to: woodcarving, weaving, basket-making, painting, photography, jewelry-making, quilting, pottery and artwork made from natural or recycled materials.
