Peaches are star at Sudlersville Festival
SUDLERSVILLE — The hot, humid weather a recurring theme for the month of August, didn’t keep hundreds of visitors from turning out to the annual 2016 Sudlersville Peach Festival at Godfrey’s Farm, Aug. 6.
This year’s event had the addition of a car show sponsored by the Sudlersville Volunteer Fire Co. and a Hogs & Heroes bike show. Winner’s were selected by people’s choice. Local musical talent Phillip Dutton and the Alligators and The Roadhouse Clams performed on the loading dock ‘stage’.
Local, artisinal vendors displayed wares including jewelery, fine art, primitives and unique findings like Cap Creations’ bottle cap art and Love Craft’s hand painted blue crab shells.
The highlight of the festival though, is always the fresh picked peaches from Godfrey’s own orchard. Peach ice cream, peach slushies, peach lemonade, and of course, the locally known Sudlersville Ruritans funnel cakes with peach topping. St. Andrews parish returned this year with their peach cobbler and Girl Scout Troop 534 offered a peach crisp.
You can still pick your own peaches if you missed the festival and the Godfrey’s Farm market is now picking sweet corn, tomatoes, cantaloupe, bell peppers and blueberries.
Godfrey Farms is open now through Labor Day at 302 Leager Road in Sudlersville.
The center of it all, basketfuls of Godfrey’s Farm peaches.
