Employees participated in the 79th National Folk Festival held in Salisbury, MD. Chesapeake Utilities committed to a three-year sponsorship of the annual event which is hosted by different U.S. cities year after year. During the first weekend of September in 2018 through 2020, the National Council of Traditional Arts has scheduled the three-day event in downtown Salisbury. Chesapeake Utilities’ team of volunteers assisted with the setup of the main stage for performances and other tasks to assist with managing the festival. This year’s festival drew more than 153,000 people in celebration of the roots, richness and variety of American culture through music, dance, crafts, storytelling and food.
