Historic Annual Waterfowl Festival

November 10-12, 2017

Since 1970, the nationally-known Waterfowl Festival has been the ultimate weekend for families, sporting enthusiasts and art lovers. Our celebration of wildlife art, sporting heritage and Eastern Shore culture is a town-wide event. Various venues throughout Easton feature: word-class wildlife paintings, sculpture, carvings and photos; collectible decoys and regional artisans; sporting gear and adventures to delight every outdoorsman or woman; the World Championship Calling Contests; retriever and fly fishing demonstrations and many kids’ activities. Of course, the weekend would be incomplete without great food and music, too.  Proceeds from the Festival support Waterfowl Chesapeake’s conservation work with a portion of the funds going directly to initiatives and projects that support communities and conservation.  Learn more>>

Much of the wildlife photography on this website is by long-time Waterfowl Festival exhibitor, Larry Hitchens. You can see his work online or during the Festival weekend in the Photography Gallery.
