Delaware City Day 2023 will be held on Saturday, October 7th!

Since 1980, Delaware City Day has been a day of celebration and family-friendly fun, honoring 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.

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 and the Delaware River on the first Saturday of October.

The Walk for Autism will take place at Fort DuPont on the morning of Delaware City Day. Please consider supporting thie worthy cause, and sign up to walk or donate here.
