Milford Bug and Bud Festival
WHERE: Walnut Street, Front Street,
and the Mispillion Riverwalk
in historic downtown Milford DE
(Kent County / Sussex County Delaware Festivals, Fairs, Craft Shows.)
Note: Milford DE is called The Garden City of Twin Counties – Kent County and Sussex County DE. DE-Vendors chooses to list Milford DE events in Sussex County.
DESCRIPTION: The annual Milford Bug and Bud Festival is a celebration of two of Milford’s most cherished symbols, the ladybug and nature. The significance of the ladybug in Delaware is tied to Milford when a local second grade class petitioned the Delaware State Legislature in 1973 to accept the ladybug as the official State Bug. The festival also serves as a celebration of Arbor Day and Milford’s designation as a USA Tree City.
The Bug and Bud Festival features a costumed parade for both kids and pets, live entertainment, food, more than 100 arts and crafts vendors, children’s art show and activities including a fabulous Kid’s Korner, “ladybug decorated” paddle boat rides, games, a Chalk Art contest and more.
This event draws approximately 9,000 visitors.
