Summer in Sussex County is more exciting than ever with over 20 events in June alone. 

In every corner of the county, the fun can be found. Town days like Sparta Day, Sandyston Day, and  Newton Day promise a fun day out with family and friends at no cost. Town days across the county have become a summertime tradition bringing families and the community together. 

Sussex County prides itself on its accessibility to people of all ages. Events like Rock, Ribs, and Ridges festival highlights our thriving multigenerational community. Whether you are a Baby Boomer, Gen Z, or a Millennial the Rock, Ribs, and Ridges festival has something for everyone. The festivities include over ten live bands featuring rock legends like Molly Hatchet. When hunger kicks visitors can try award-winning barbeque and even cast their vote on their favorites.

 For the food lovers of Sussex County make sure not to miss the 31st annual crawfish fest! Enjoy different types of music from Louisiana and New Orleans including Delta Blues and Jazz. With over 20 live performances over three days and dance lessons being offered festival-goers won’t know where to start. Enjoy southern classics including Crawfish Etouffee and Pork, Sausage, and Chicken jambalayas among many others. There will also be festive unique cocktails like Crawfish Trap and Barenjager Honey Bourbon Lemonade.
