The Lewes Historical Society invites you to the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Ocean Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday, June 1, and June 2, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

The 2024 Festival will be located on the Society's main campus on Shipcarpenter Street. The event will include a lecture series, a children’s educational area, dozens of sea glass and ocean artists, a variety of antique glass and sea glass collectors, shard ID experts, live music, food, historic interpreters, and a selection of beverages at the Sussex Tavern and Coffee & Tea House.

The two-day event lecture series will range in subjects from sea glass to local shipwrecks and coastal conservation. 

Close to 70 sea glass and ocean artisans will be highlighting and selling their unique art. The Delmarva Antique Bottle Club will be on hand throughout the weekend to identify the origin of attendees’ pieces of sea glass. Please bring your favorite shards to be identified! Members will have vintage bottles for reference and sale. Individual sea glass collections will also be on display, along with fun activities for all ages.

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