Fairhaven Chicken Festival

June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Fairhaven’s  First Annual “Chicken Festival” is 12:00 noon – 4:00, June 18 on the Fairhaven Village Green Park across 10th street from the Fairhaven Village Inn in Bellingham. Chicken Festival  a whimsical and family friendly afternoon!

DUE TO THE CURRENT AVIAN INFLUENZA – We will not have live chickens in attendance!

The Carnival is full of Chicken themed games, prizes, storytelling and activity, prizes, exhibits, vendors, art and entertainment ( yes, the chicken dance)! Even the treats are appealing to chickens…we would not dream of offering chicken to eat!   All in honor of chickens are local musicians, Chicken dancing, Village wide Scavenger hunt , Chicken Mascot and costume contest open to all.

The Fairhaven Association has “seed corn” for this event thanks to generous donations  from Scratch and Peck Feeds, First Federal Bank, Galloway’s Cocktail Bar, and Redwood Group Realty!
