Things to Do at the Festival
Fall Fest is a unique gathering with so much to do!
Original Craft Artisans
There are approximately 40 craft booths for you to explore and purchase one-of-a-kind items.
Two stages feature locals bands jamming out all day. Tantalize your ears and listen to jazz, honky-tonk, blues, New Orleans Zydeco, and a steel drum band.

Run for Character 5K Walk/Run
This event is free for children 10 years and under to participate, and $20 for adults. The race benefits Character Counts of Kent County and Rock Hall Elementary School. Character Counts is an admirable cause whose mission is to strengthen the community by encouraging a culture of kindness and strong ethical values. They offer community events and educational programs that make a positive impact on the lives of students in Kent County. Make sure you pre-register for the race!
If you’re attending the Fall Fest with the kiddos, they will love the Kids Kourt. Moon bounces, slides, crafts, pony rides, and face painting entertain children for hours.
