The first order of business? Why, seeing the daffodils, of course! Visitors can stroll through St. Michaels' Talbot Street for stunning views of the flowers around town. You can participate in a guided tour put on by the St. Michaels Museum or do some exploring of your own. Daffodil Maps will be available at the nearby Muskrat Park and can also be printed from the festival's website.
The artists from St. Michaels' Art League will whip out their paintbrushes for a relaxing Plein Air, and their work will be put on display between Railroad Avenue and Talbot. Dog-lovers can dress up their pooches like the golden flower as part of The Daffy Dog Costume Contest. If your stomach starts growling, St. Michaels has many delicious restaurants like Ava's Pizzeria and St. Michaels Crab & Steak House.
After a day spent seeing such beautiful flowers, you might feel inspired to plant your own. St. Michaels Library will provide free daffodil seeds, so you can put your green thumb to work and start your own garden!
