Join us for an old-fashioned harvest fest at Sultana’s new Lawrence Wetlands Preserve in Chestertown.  Bring a blanket, bring the family, and spend a few hours surrounded by nature as you enjoy great music, food, friends, and drink.  Did we mention there will be plenty to do for the kids?

Here’s some of what you can look forward to:

    • Live Bluegrass with Flatland Drive

    • Oysters on the Half Shell with the Kent County Waterman’s Association

    • Children’s Petting Zoo with Party Animals

    • Face Painting / Pumpkin Painting

    • Pumpkin Bocce (yes, this is real!)

    • Food Trucks

    • Regional Beer & Wine

Fall Festival FAQ:  

The Lawrence Wetlands Preserve is located at 301 South Mill Street in Chestertown.  The Preserve can only be accessed on foot so please do not drive to this address!  See question on parking below.

There is no parking at the Lawrence Preserve.  Please park at the town lots on the 200 and 300 blocks of Cannon Street.  You can also park at the Wilmer Park Parking Lot.  From your parking space, please use the GPS address of 301 South Mill Street to walk to the Preserve.  From the 300 block of Cannon Street the walk is approximately three minutes.

The Preserve is designed to be accessible to all.  If you use a wheelchair and think you need assistance, please call ahead to 410-778-5954.  There is an accessible bathroom.

There is no smoking or vaping allowed in the Lawrence Preserve.

Sorry, because of the children’s petting zoo there will be no dogs allowed in the Lawrence Preserve during this event. Service animals trained for a specific function related to a qualifying disability are permitted so long as the animal is housebroken, leashed, and under direct control of their handler at all times. If any handler does not adhere to these conditions, or if the Sultana Education Foundation believes that a service animal’s conduct poses a direct threat to the health or safety of other individuals or service animals, the handler will be asked to remove the animal from the venue. It is a crime to misrepresent a pet as a service animal.

We would prefer that people sit on blankets, but if you have a health or mobility issue that makes a chair better, please bring one.

Please supervise children at all times while they are at the Preserve.

Please do not bring outside food into the Preserve. There will be food trucks selling things to eat during the event.

Do not Bring alcohol into the Preserve. There will be beer and wine for sale at the Harwood Nature Center.

There is one ADA accessible bathroom in the Harwood Nature Center that will be open to the public during this event, and several port o potties will also be on site.
