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. This will ultimately foster the continued preservation of Delaware City’s place in history, now and in the future.

This celebration is organized by the Delaware City Day Committee which is an all volunteer committee appointed by the City of Delaware City. The event is made possible in part through State grant-in-aid money. Additional funding comes from fund raising sales and contributions from our many corporate neighbors.

The Delaware City Day festivities are held in Historic Delaware City along the waterfront in Battery Park at the foot of Clinton Street overlooking Fort Delaware.
