This event continues to be immensely successful and is made possible through the work of hundreds of volunteers. The Festival annually assists the operating budget for Talbot Hospice which benefits terminally ill patients and families in Talbot County facing life limiting illness.

Talbot Hospice is the premier resource in Talbot County for people facing end-of-life illness, loss and grief. We provide full service hospice care in homes, nursing facilities and at the Hospice House on Cynwood Drive in Easton. Talbot Hospice offers hope, compassionate support and services to all members of our community without regard for ability to pay. Programs include Pediatric Care, Pathways, bereavement and spiritual counseling, community education and trained volunteers. Services are offered to individuals, caregivers, families and friends.
