Kent County draws people for its NASCAR races, slot machines and historic buildings. In October 2010, county promoters gave Delaware residents another reason to visit: beer and wine. The Delaware Wine & Beer Festival sold 2,500 tickets at $25 a pop, says Cindy Small, executive director of Kent County Tourism. That’s nearly three times as many as they expected to sell. Naturally, the event will take place again this year. It’s one of the county’s nearly three dozen annual festivals. Here’s a look at some of the popular events in Kent County.
