Woodland Ferry Festival

Saturday, 2013, September 14 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

The festival takes place along the Woodland Church Road in the small community of  Woodland, DE, home of the historic Woodland Ferry.  The ferry is on the National Register of Historic Places .The current ferry, named the Tina Fallon, was christened and put into service on October 29, 2008.  The Woodland Ferry Association (a group of local citizens dedicated to preserving the charm and history of the area) is happy to once again bring back this festival after a three year absence.  The traditional Opening ceremonies will begin at 9:00 AM.  Another favorite tradition, the “Battle of the Bands” between Seaford and Laurel High schools will take place on the ferry.   The ferry will be closed to vehicle traffic during the festivities to allow foot passengers to take the short, yet scenic ride between the Seaford and Laurel sides of the Nanticoke River.   Festivals goers will be treated to a diverse variety of food, craft and art vendors along with product exhibitors.    Local nonprofit organizations will present information on the Nanticoke River, its watershed and area history.  There will be fun activities for kids.  Entertainment begins at 10 AM will be provided by local area groups “The Good News Tour”, “Charlie Paparella and the Olivet Church String Band” with guests “The Willey Family” and “ The Out of Order Band”.   A silent auction will take place and the ever popular Woodland Ferry crockery  will be available for purchase.
