Milford's 9th Annual Bug & Bud Festival

On Saturday, April 28 Milford, Delaware (hometown of the LadyBug Shop) will hold its 9th Annual Bug & Bud Festival. This year event goers will enjoy over 150 food and merchant vendors, downtown businesses, activities for kids, paddle boat rides on the Mispillion River and live entertainment by several local musical and dance groups.  Based on the turnout in previous years, it is anticipated that at least 10,000 people will attend the festival and enjoy beautriful downtown Milford.

The Bug & Bud Festival is a celebration of two of Milford’s most cherished symbols, the ladybug and nature. The significance of the ladybug in Delaware is tied to Milford when a local second grade class petitioned the Delaware State Legislature in 1973 to accept the ladybug as the official State Bug, Click here to read the store of the Delaware State Bug! The festival also serves as a celebration of Arbor Day and Milford’s designation as a USA Tree City.

Every year the Festival starts with a parade lead by Dan and Rhonda Bond, owners of the LadyBug Shop!

We hope you can join us for this year's celebration.  Details about the Bug & Bud Festival are available at the Downtown Milford Inc. website.
