       About the Festival of Trains

    The Festival of Trains has been a long lasting, yearly tradition in Queen Anne's County and Kent Island that benefits both the QARRS and the Queen Anne's Museum of Eastern Shore Life. Growing every year the Festival features several operating layouts in scales big and small such as G, O, HO, TT, N and Z scales. Some layouts are even interactive for the kids! Complimenting the trains are several historic displays highlighting the region's railroad history such as railroad photos, maps and memorabilia. In addition, there are several silent auctions and raffles that feature model trains, general goodies and Christmas items. All benefits go towards QARRS and the Museum of Eastern Shore Life. This includes our Community Sponsorships, where local businesses can pledge an amount in exchange for advertising, some of which is located ON our layouts! And finally, on select days a visit from the big red man himself is expected! 

The OFFICIAL 2020 Festival of Trains dates will be posted here first in late summer/early fall!
