Join us for a full day of fun on Saturday, November 2nd!
We will start our day at the Dogfish Head Brewery for a tour and tasting. It is hard for me to imagine a better way to start the day!
After the tour, there will be food at a food truck and more delicious craft beer for sale.
Following our brewery tour and tasting, we’ll caravan over to a Delaware farm, for the region’s (and perhaps the world’s) largest pumpkin launching contest. You’ll have the opportunity to watch as a collection of the region’s greatest minds put their hand-built and powered contraptions to the ultimate launching test: “chunking” 8-10 pound pumpkins as far as they will go (and hopefully, farther than you could have imagined possible). The record distance for the adult air launch is a whopping 4,500 feet. This is a world championship you don’t want to miss!
Should you grow weary of watching the launching of the pumpkins (a/k/a the “chunk”), you can wander around the farm grounds to watch various musical performers as they take the stage, visit the booths of vendors selling their crafts and sample some of the best fair food from 18 local food vendors. Saturday’s events culminate with a sunset fireworks show (weather permitting).
The event goes on all day (rain or shine). We recommend that you pack a blanket and/or camping chair, and dress for the season. We suggest that you wear layers to keep warm and sneakers to navigate the farm grounds.
And, perhaps most importantly, don’t forget your ID!
Spots are limited. You are only counted as coming if you register and pay. Once registered details on meeting will be provided to you.
