Ring in the summer solstice by attending these four fun, family-friendly festivals taking place in Wilmington, DE, throughout the month of June. Learn more about each one, listed in order of event date below…
Holy Trinity Greek Festival: June 6-10
As the Delaware Valley’s largest Greek Festival in its 42nd year, the Holy Trinity Greek Festival has made its very own tradition out of celebrating Greek culture.
Although Greek culture is the theme, attending this festival won’t be all Greek to you. The folks at Holy Trinity do an exceptional job at welcoming everyone to their family-friendly Greek party. Look forward to all-day festivities, including authentic Greek food, Greek music played by the Philadelphia Atlantis orchestra, folk dancing, and more.
Just in the mood for some genuine Greek grub? The festival will run a curbside pickup service for their tantalizing Greek eats. Get traditional eggplant and potato casserole, spinach-feta pie with a buttery crust, or grape leaves stuffed with beef and rice to-go by ordering online or on the festival’s app!
St. Anthony’s Italian Festival: June 11-18
Belonging to an Italian family is an experience like no other, and one that St. Anthony’s Festival, the largest Italian-American festival in the region, makes possible each year for everyone.
If you love Italian food, St. Anthony’s is the place to indulge, tortellini to tiramisu. Local Italian caterers and food vendors will fill a massive festival food court located between 9th and 10th Streets with everything from carving stations to artisanally aged meets and authentic Italian cheeses. And of course, handmade pasta!
In addition to a stellar Italian marketplace and catered dining options, St. Anthony’s Italian Festival will feature orchestra, ballet, and jazz performances, as well as a sensational home winemaker’s competition. You can even check out a full lineup of the classic Italian city car, courtesy of Carman FIAT.
The DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival: June 21-24
From smooth jazz that plays out like a lazy summer afternoon to lively trumpet trills and a catchy swing beat, no music genre sums up the energy of summer quite like jazz.
The DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival celebrates the life of Clifford Brown, a Wilmington native and true jazz great who was a gifted composer, trumpeter, and entertainer.
Now in its 29th year, the festival continues Clifford’s captivating performance commitment and love of testing the limits of jazz with a 4-day tribute at Rodney Square.
In addition to listening to the performers who take the festival stage, look forward to enjoying food and wine pairings that make music of their own!
New Castle County Ice Cream Festival: June 24 & 25
The perfect way to cool down on a hot summer’s day? Ice cream. Tasting an unbeatable assortment of ice cream flavors from the finest makers in the county? Now, that’s a summertime festival that’s tough to beat.
