Festival at the Fort
Festival at the Fort 2018
- Visit again for 2019 plans (to be announced)!
In 2018 guests were invited to bring family and friends on Sunday, April 22 from 12-4 PM to the revitalized 7th Street Peninsula to celebrate the coming of spring on the Christina River and Colonial Life in the Delaware Valley! With food trucks, music, children’s games, tours of the Kalmar Nyckel and historical reenactments, Festival at the Fort (formerly SpringFest) was a great event!
Experience the rich heritage of the Wilmington Colonial-era cultures of the Lenape, Swedes, Finns, Dutch and English with an afternoon of fun and learning for the whole family on Sunday, April 22.
Proceeds Benefit: New Sweden Centre, Old Swedes Foundation, the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation, the Delaware Swedish Colonial Society, and the New Sweden Alliance.
Did you know: That Kalmar Nyckel was a "Dutch Pinnace," a new class of gun-armed merchant ship that could also serve as a naval vessel?
