The 2014 Galena Dogwood Festival will be held Saturday May 3th, 2014 in Galena, MD.  Beginning at 8AM, the Dogwood Dart 5k will kick off the day’s activities. At 10 am the parade will commence down Main Street, with folks lining the street from start to end.  Local organizations put on a show with their imaginative floats and displays.  Local municipalities bring out all the bells and whistles on their fire engines and EMT squads.  The high school and community marching bands perform at their finest! New this year, the War of 1812 militia men of the Chesapeake Independent Blues will march down Main Street in full historical flare!

Following the parade the festival begins held in the community park.  There will be games, entertainment, children’s activities, and best of all local Eastern Shore food!  Artisans and crafters surround the festival displaying their wares and goods for sale.

NEW THIS YEAR!  We will be opening a new venue at the corner of Main St. & Virginia Ave – THE DOGWOOD MUSIC FESTIVAL in the town parking lot where Galena’s very own Andover Recording Studio will feature 4 regional modern rock bands from 11-2.  As well, the lot will feature local food and artisans displaying their wares.


While listening to music and enjoying local fare we’re sure you’ll be thirsty so head on over to the SRBC  Beer Garden on Main Street! (in the alley between Galena Antiques Center & Empire Estates 108 N. Main St.)

The beer garden will run from NOON till the taps go dry!
