Highlighting Local Artists
Although this festival boasts many events, one of the highlights is definitely the local artwork on display. Artists take inspiration from the wildlife surrounding the unique ecosystem within the Chesapeake Bay. Painters, sculptors, and photographers gather to present their works celebrating life on the bay in a variety of mediums.
It’s impossible to describe the beautiful and humbling moments these talented artists are able to capture. These galleries are definitely something to be experienced.
A Great Event Supporting a Great Cause
The Waterfowl Festival is hosted by Waterfowl Chesapeake, a non-profit organization that finds financial aid to fund environmental needs. This festival was organized so that our community could celebrate and learn more about the waterfowl species that help our bay thrive.
At Admiral Cleaners, we are so proud to be a part of such a talented and caring community that works to celebrate and protect our beautiful bay. It’s one of the many reasons we are committed to our environmental programs. Learn more about our forward-thinking initiatives.
