July 20th – 27th: Delaware City Day, DCM: Grand Adventures, Chief Quiet Thunder, and The Muppets

Delaware City Day

Since 1980 the Delaware City Day Celebration has been a full day of fun family entertainment. The goal is to honor and celebrate our riverfront town’s historic architecture and our “small town America” culture.
