This Year’s Festival Proudly Supports:
The Chesapeake Bay Trust is a 501c(3) nonprofit grant-making organization dedicated to improving the watersheds of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland Coastal Bays, and Youghiogheny River. Created in 1985 by the Maryland General Assembly, our goal is to increase stewardship through grant programs, special initiatives, and partnerships that support K-12 environmental education, on-the ground watershed restoration, community engagement, and the underlying science of these three realms. Through our grants to schools, local governments, community groups, faith-based groups, watershed organizations, and other not-for-profit entities, the Trust engages hundreds of thousands of students and volunteers in projects that have a measurable impact on the natural resources of our region.

For hundreds of years, over 80% of the American population lived in semi-isolation on small family farms scattered throughout the countryside. Award-winning Hancock’s Resolution, located in Pasadena, Maryland, is one of the very few of those farms still remaining. Due to its authenticity and simplicity it is considered a “National Treasure”. It is a small house with a huge story to tell because of its five historic themes.
