    If you love history, gardens, festivals or even just beer, A Day in Old New Castle is there for you (if you can get to Delaware, anyway).

    This event, featuring beautiful and historic home and garden tours in a 350+-year-old town along the Delaware River, is 92 years old, making it the nation's oldest event of its kind.

    Old New Castle's cobblestone streets will be filled with historical civilian and military encampments, the Fort Delaware Coronet Band, colonial dancing, a beer garden, theater, a homebrew competition, activities for children, storytelling, old-time games and more.

    The festival is set for on Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Adult tickets are $20, tickets for kids ages 6-12 are $5, and children under 5 get in free. Purchase tickets here.
