About Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival

The Lewes Historical Society's 2022 Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5 - at the Lewes Historical Society's Campus. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, rain or shine. Admission is $5 per person each day, children 12 and under are free. Event parking is not provided but is available throughout the town of Lewes. Please plan accordingly.

2022 is the 13th year for this event, and is expected to be better than ever! The Historical Society will be focusing again on the historic origins of sea glass and will be emphasizing the authenticity of shards at the show. "Chat with an Expert" special guests will join the festival. Experts will be available to talk with festival-goers and help to identify the origins of your special sea glass shards. Bring your favorite sea glass shards for the experts to identify!

The festival will also feature sea glass and coastal artists in various mediums such as sea glass, wood, photography, painting, ceramics, metal, and sculpture. Vendors come from up and down the East Coast.

Plans for 2022:

  • Chat with an Expert 
  • Sea Glass Exhibitions 
  • Children's Corner: Just Getting Started 
  • Collections 
  • Food Vendors
  • Music

Enjoy festive music and delicious food all weekend. Learn the history of sea glass and bring your glass shards and bottles, as specialists will be available to identify your treasurers on-site.

With greater environmental awareness, there has been a decline in naturally occurring sea glass, creating a great market for expensive and rare pieces. We hope to showcase these unique finds at the festival and offer opportunities for attendees to learn more about the history of sea glass. 

The Lewes Historical Society invites the public to celebrate sea glass and coastal art with us! For more details about the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival or more information on The Lewes Historical Society, contact 302-645-7670.

Vendor Applications will available in January 2022.
