The highly anticipated Lewes Historical Society Summer Craft Fair will be held on July 15th -16th from 9:00 a.m. – 4 p.m., rain-or-shine.  The Fair is well known for the exceptional quality of the craftspeople who exhibit each year. New and returning artisans hail from across Delmarva and the Eastern Shore; their expertise covers a wide variety of media including metalwork, pottery, woodwork, and watercolor to name just a few.  Plan to spend the day and enjoy the festive atmosphere of our main campus whose historic buildings will be open to the public. Stop by Sussex Tavern in the Rabbits Ferry House for a period beverage or cold ale! The complex is filled with beautiful shade trees and gardens, providing a beautiful backdrop for your visit. 

Your admission to the festival provides access to all LHS properties and museums on Saturday July 15th so while you're here plan to visit the Historical Society's other locations including the Ryves Holt House gift shop & information center, the Maritime Museum at the Cannonball House, The Lewes U.S. Lifesaving Station, the Lewes History Museum, and the LHS Antique Shop in the historic "Z Club" building. Ask for a location map!

Proceeds from this event will benefit educational and preservation programs at the Lewes Historical Society.
